Short Term Care or Longterm Care…
What does my aging loved-one need?
My family and I are trying to make decisions about our aging parents and are just wondering what type of care options are out there for them? We are just beginning our search and are mostly clueless. We have no idea where to start or if we can even afford what might be needed. Can you help?
