Give me an example of someone who got a Life Care Plan just in the nick of time.
More than once, Mom had gotten lost on the way back from the grocery store and the police had to help her find her way back home. She also would take walks in her neighborhood and couldn’t find her way back home without the help of kind neighbors.
Give me an example of someone who waited too late to get a Life Care Plan and what were the consequences of waiting?
Two sisters came to my office because Mom was in the Nursing Home recuperating from a broken foot. They felt they were not going to be able to physically take care of Mom themselves and needed some help. They got a Life Care Plan.
When a child or spouse notices that they are having to do more and more to take care of Mom and feels they need a little help or may feel they don’t know what needs to be done. All they know is something needs to be done.
A Life Care Plan is an Action Plan that sets forth what we are going to do to keep Mom safe and independent at home. Our Elder Care Coordinator who is a licensed social worker will come to Mom’s home to meet with Mom and the children, spouse or caregiver.
