A candid guide for caregivers
Eldercare Confidential is for the caregivers and caretakers who are often thrust into the role of fiduciary, either by legal appointment or by assuming the role because of their relationship to the elderly person who needs caretaking. Typically, this is a close relative, like a parent. The duties of a fiduciary spelled out by laws include loyalty and reasonable care of the assets within custody. This is more than a moral responsibility; this is a legal obligation.
As the owner of a new business in the senior caregiving sector, this book has helped me immensely. Rather than focusing solely on the services my company offers, the content offered has inspired me to develop a team of contacts in the various fields around the senior sector, including elder law attorneys, fiduciaries, geriatric care managers, etc. Since I know I can never become an expert in each facet of senior care, I can now serve as a resource to direct seniors and families to trusted advisors based on their specific needs. Eldercare Confidential has identified most of the major issues I can expect to encounter.
