On this episode of The Senior Smart Show, we talk about the book called The Caregivers Training Program. As we grow older, the baby boomers, Generation X and everyone in between will be touched in some way by the issues of elder care. It is a never-ending maze of doctors, specialists, health care facility choices, hospice, estate planning, benefits and stress. You find yourself asking so many questions:

  • How do you know if your parent needs at-home care, an assisted living facility or skilled nursing care?
  • When do you make a move, and better yet, how do you approach your parents with the discussion?
  • How do you convince your parent it's not safe for him to drive anymore?
  • How do you protect the family assets while maintaining eligibility for government benefits?
  • How do you pay for it all?

I’m here to tell you the answers are not easy, nor were they easily discovered... until now. The Caregiver's Training Program provides guidance on everything from basic mobility aids to dealing with Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson Disease and more. This book is designed to help you manage the day to day aspects of your parent's care, written in plain language understandable by anyone. Also includes the Medicare Minute. Hosted by Melissa Sprouse Browne.
