How do we navigate this stage in our life most of us dread and don't want to enter into? I'm talking about facing the decision to place our loved one in a nursing home.

My guest this week is Lisa Marie Chiricho who created Nursinghomeology.com.

Lisa was the caregiver for her own dad for 15 years after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.  In the last 5 years of his life he lived in a nursing home. Lisa's passion now is helping other caregivers manage, monitor and organize the care their loved ones receive. Her major lesson learned - the responsibility of the family actually increases once their loved one moves into a skilled nursing facility.

We explore this and other tips to make life easier for caregivers in this segment of their journey.
