Supporting the Caregiver as well as the Elderly

Caring for the elderly requires much more than just addressing their health care needs. Personal finances, legal matters, living arrangements, and family issues all contribute to the complexity of ensuring that your loved ones–and those of you who support them–receive the planning, care and guidance they need.

Caregivers too, often one or more family members, must receive the support they need during this trying time. They may be under significant pressure to identify and engage the best and most financially reasonable resources that their loved one needs. Caregivers need questions answered and they frequently need assistance in making critical decisions.
