Whether you are planning for your retirement, living with a chronic health condition, caring for someone with Alzheimer's Disease or other form of Dementia, or sensibly planning for your future or that of a loved one, ‘7 Steps to Long-term Care Planning’ is designed for you. The aging demographics are shaping how communities are prepared and how care is delivered. It is important for individuals and families to engage in meaningful discussions early and have a plan. The truth is planning for long-term care is highly personal and the responsibility of each individual. Through my experience as an RN and a long-term care planning specialist, I have found many individuals and families don’t know where to begin when it comes to designing a road map for aging. Perhaps the greatest challenge is knowing where to start.
I developed a simple, seven-step process to guide you through important decision making. You will gain valuable insight while developing your road map for aging, regardless of your situation. The goal is for your peace of mind, sense of control and direction so you can focus on the joyful parts of life. Is seven-step planning right for you? I bet so.
