And They’re Completely Unprepared!
A stunning 66 million Americans--1 in 5 adults!--are “family caregivers.” And just last year, 20 million people became new caregivers. Becoming a new caregiver means that an individual’s family member (or himself/herself) had an event such as a fall, hospitalization, accident, or new diagnosis. Alternatively, there may not have been a single event, and instead a loved one’s health declined to the point that he/she required additional support.
New caregivers face a long list of very critical decisions including day-to-day activities, in-home support, treatment options, payment options, and so much more. The most common thing we hear from new caregivers is, “I don’t even know what I don’t know.”
We have a simple “Care Framework” that we apply to all complex care situations. It walks families through six categories of consideration: legal, financial, in-home, housing, medical, and social/emotional.
If you or someone you know need help with the tasks outlined in Wellthy’s “Care Framework”, get started with a Care Coordinator today. Care Coordinators are your experts - they’ll be with you every step of the way.
