Publisher's Summary

I wrote this book for the person whose loved one requires additional assistance in searching for a place to live out their golden years. Whether they are your parent, partner, or sibling, know that you're not alone in your search. This book will be a useful tool that can help you gather information you need to make well-informed and wise decisions with or on behalf of your loved one when searching for an assisted living facility.

Currently there are more than 40 million caregivers in the US. They are folks just like you, who wish to assist but don't have an understanding of what is needed for managing elderly health challenges. Three main options for elderly individuals and their families include in-home care agencies, assisted living facilities, and nursing homes. It makes sense to most people that nursing homes, with their more intensive levels of care, cost more than assisted living. What many don't realize is that the elder care costs associated with home care can quickly outpace the costs of assisted living as well. Home care agencies typically charge by the hour, meaning it will depend on how much care is needed, but the expenses can add up quickly for anyone who needs extensive care.

In this book we'll be focusing solely on assisted living facilities, although I will explain how ALFs relate to the other options, so you can make the best decision possible. In this book I share with you the questions I initially needed answers to as well as the ones I added to my list as I learned more along the way. So it's my hope that after listening, you should have a comprehensive understanding of what to look for, what to look out for, and the right questions to ask facility administrators when looking for a place for your elderly family member.

Time is the only thing on this planet that we can't get more of, so use this book as a resource to help collapse time frames, created from my education and experience to help you find the best care for your loved one.

    "A topic that touches all of us"

    I really enjoy how the author read this book. The topic of assisted living was something I wish I better understood when my grandpa was aging and needing help. At first we had a caregiver which quickly became very expensive. Thank you for writing and sharing this book with such great detail and helping us understand how to care for our parents.
