Contributor Highlights Ten Tips, Resources For Families To Care For Older Adults.

January 10, 2020

Forbes (1/10) contributor William A. Haseltine wrote that “The creeping prevalence of aging societies isn’t just a challenge for national governments, policymakers, and healthcare providers to solve,” but “affects everyone who has, or will have, an elder family member or loved one in their lives – and everyone lucky enough to grow old themselves.” Haseltine offered “ten pieces of advice, and some accompanying resources, for those who want their loved ones to age as comfortably, independently, and vibrantly as possible.” Haseltine recommended families investigate insurance options, listing the National Institute on Aging’s “comprehensive guide to paying for long term care that includes a cost of care calculator” as a resource. Furthermore, Haseltine said to stay educated, recommending families “explore the list of educational resources for older adults and their caregivers collated by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.”
