Did you know that the average age of elderly people leaving their home for full-time, managed care has increased from age 74 to age 90? People are staying in their homes longer and they don’t want to leave their homes in order to go to a managed care facility. I have personally experienced the effects of this and lately it seems to be a theme. While our loved ones wish to remain in their homes it can create a burden on family and it also creates safety issues. Are they safe to stay home alone? If not then who will stay with them? Many elderly are safe to be at home but simply require assistance for things like cleaning their home, getting groceries and basic household duties. Can their loved ones take on the task of caring for all of those duties along with their own duties? Often the answer is no, but with little choice but to place their loved one in a managed care facility, the burden becomes heavy.
