Is Home Care the Answer?

As Mom’s ability to care for herself at home continues to decrease, one option I’ve been considering is home care. It seems like the perfect intermediate solution between self-sufficiency and assisted living. Having someone come in for a few hours per week or even a few hours per day to help with cooking, cleaning, and personal care would relieve a lot of my concerns. The Boston offers a helpful fact sheet on home care – how to find help, evaluate employees, and pay for the care. Useful reading.

Of course, convincing Miss Independent to accept help is another question. I haven’t figured that one out yet. And the Dems are messing with the Medicare home care option, so we may not have it for long. Always one more  challenge...

Good luck and I hope everything works out. If only this new plan of the Dems. would be a good thing. But we all know that will not be the case. Merry Christmas!!!
