Resources to help with aging issues

Here are links to various resources to help you with aging issues … your own … or your parents.

This topic is so important that I have a permanent link to this blog on my website’s Current Client Resources page.

 

U.S. Government’s Department of Health and Human Services Administration on Aging Elder & Families information.

Care Scout – help connect families to local information on long term care resources and services.

 

Adult Day Care – locator service and how to decide if this is an option. National Adult Day Services Association – use the locator to find local services and other helpful info for consumers.

Home Health Care Agencies – locator service and how to decide if this is an option.

Assisted Living Facilities – locator and how to decide if this is an option.

Skilled Nursing Facilities – locator and how to decide if this is an option.

 

[Update 10 Aug 2012: Note that when I come across new material, I post it in the comments as I have below for this post.]
