When dealing with an issue for an elderly person—with a parent, with a spouse—doing nothing is the worst thing you can do. Take the first step and call me so we can have a conversation.
What do you do if a spouse or parent goes into the nursing home out of the blue? No advance notice—you didn’t see it coming and all of a sudden you have a loved one in a skilled nursing home.
There is nothing worse than dealing with the emotions of a major health event or other major crisis and not having a plan in place. It is best to know the loved one’s wishes to ease the burden of the decision-making process.
