Long-Term Care Dilemma
If you have trouble deciding which long-term care option is right for you, you are not alone.
In the US, there are over 18,000 home health agencies, 30,000 assisted living facilities and 18,000 nursing homes (Time, Aug 30, 1999).
Which one is the right match for your individual needs? Something to consider is that a recent study finds that 80% of people discharged from assisted living facilities gave the reason as needing more care*.
Consulting with a professional geriatric case manager can narrow the gap and assist with making the right choice for you.
