Senior care is a difficult subject to tackle, but should definitely be discussed.
Discuss the care you would like to receive before an emergency situation occurs. The United States aging population is climbing. People 65 and over is projected to almost double to 83,000,000 Americans by 2050. Only a third of Americans think they will need long-term care, and two-thirds will actually need this care.
The care you receive should be your choice. It is always a good idea to be prepared for the what ifs. Nowadays, there are so many options with senior care. It can be given by a caregiver in conjunction with a home health care team or can be provided by a nursing home or an assisted living facility. Choose the option that best fits your lifestyle. Most people don’t realize the cost of senior care, and approximately three-fourths of those needing adult care will pay for it themselves or have an out-of-pocket expense, and the average cost this care is $25,000 in a lifetime. The idea of senior care can be stressful, but preparation can alleviate some of the emotional and financial stress. Aging is natural. CompassionCare Hospice of Las Vegas knows knowledge is power.
