“I enthusiastically recommend The Eldercare Consultant. Having worked with the elderly and their caregivers for over 30 years, I’ve seen firsthand how the challenge of making decisions for your loved one can feel like traveling through a foreign land without a map. This book is a simple, yet powerful, guide to help you navigate your unique and personal journey without losing your direction, sanity, or love.” --Bernice Wilson O’Roark, MSN, Retired Founding Director of the Ohio Hospice Organization; President of SilverSpirit; former Executive Director of ElderSpirit CoHousing; and family caregiver
Caring for someone who is no longer independent and in complete control is one of the most difficult challenges many people ever face. Making the decision to seek assistance—and possibly place your loved one in an eldercare facility—can be equal parts difficult, complicated, and confusing. Weaving together instructive and inspiring real-life stories with the essential information you need to make the best decisions for you and your family, The Eldercare Consultant helps you:
Recognize when a loved one needs assistance • Spot the warning signs of physical and mental decline • Determine the level of care needed • Evaluate the options— family caregiver, home health care, palliative care, senior housing, assisted living facilities—and select the right one • Discuss the issue with your loved one • Understand and manage the costs of care • Make the adjustment as smooth as possible •l Avoid caregiver burnout • And much more.
Both compassionate and practical, this book supplies you with the knowledge, support, and encouragement you need to cut through the confusion, ensure that the people you love are getting exceptional care...and turn an undeniably difficult transition into a journey of hope and love.
BECKY FEOLA is the founder of Assisted Living Advantage, which provides counseling, evaluations, and placement services for those seeking care options. As primary caregiver to a husband with Huntington’s disease, she faced the same challenges and had the same questions her clients do now.
