I read this article and thought of some of my clients who are at that potentially frustrating place where either they, their parents, or their loved ones are in need of some kind of home care assistance. So many of our elders want to “age in place,” but finding home care can be frustrating and overwhelming. This entry is not meant to be the answer to your questions about home care, but it does offer some great online sites to get a handle on what’s possible, what it may cost, and where you might find someone to help. Don’t forget your local resources! Sometimes what you have in your own community is the best there is. Be sure to check out private, non-profit, city, county, and state-wide resources as well.

If you are thinking you or your loved one is in need of in-home care, but you’re not convinced you or they can afford it, you may find an Elder Law Attorney a helpful professional to contact. They may be able to assist you with financial planning, suggesting resources, or finding out if you qualify for Medical Assistance and assisting you with an application.This blog is written by Bridget-Michaele Reischl, Attorney DECORO LAW OFFICE, PLLC www.decorolaw.com
