"Caregiving Your Parent"

"They also address such issues as how far in advance should you talk about to your parents about their plans and what do you say?"

"Plan Now is targeted toward someone"

"Being a caregiver for your aging parent can sneak up on you,"

They care about the elderly, but they abuse language.

Stacy at From the Heart Senior Living Options was a tremendous help for our family when we needed to move our Mom who is very active socially and mentally, but has a lot of physical needs. There are a lot of senior communities out there and Stacy knew exactly which ones were a good fit for Mom and would deliver what they promised. If questions came up, she promptly called the community and got answers. She taught us the importance of the "two person assist". And licensing. Stacy narrowed our search - a HUGE help.
