There are certain subjects in life that we all need to deal with at one time or another, but are hard to think about and plan for. What to do when a spouse or a loved one needs extra help as they age is one of those topics. What makes this an even less fun conversation is the sheer mind-boggling complexity of the senior care landscape. Acronyms like RCAC, CBRF, ADL, SNF cause confusion, how to pay for senior care causes anxiety, and uncertainty about what a loved one wants and needs and when they will want and need it can result in choice paralysis.
Pam Foti and Jenny Wagner understand these emotions, and are here to help. Both are elder care consultants and owners of Vesta Senior Network, a consultant organization that works with older adults and their loved ones to help them understand the many choices and opportunities that exist for them once it’s time for them to leave their own home.
Retire United and the Retiree Advisory Council recently hosted Pam and Jenny for a discussion on navigating senior living and care. For those who were not able to be in the room, we recorded the talk and Q&A.
