Elder Care in Greensboro
Caregiving is a multi-faceted job that requires a whole slew of skills: medical, financial, legal, interpersonal, etc. The more you can learn about what lies ahead for your loved one and yourself, the better prepared you will be throughout this journey.

Whether Dad was just diagnosed with the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, a chronic condition that yields a notoriously long caregiving road, or your healthy spouse has just fallen and broken their hip, it’s important to learn everything you can about their medical condition(s), the type of care they need now, their prognosis and the type of care they will need in the future. Understanding the details will help you know what to expect medically, financially and even emotionally.

A caregiver support group, whether in person or online like the Caregiver Forum, is an invaluable tool for people who are new to elder care. Ask people who have been in the trenches what they did that worked, what they wish they had done differently, and what they recommend. Fellow caregivers possess a wealth of often untapped wisdom.

As you learn things, discuss them with your loved one and their care team to ensure you all are on the same page and formulate a care plan. There are numerous sources of information and assistance available online, through your state and through your local community. Finding them can be a challenge, but We can help you with answers.
