When parents enter into long term care facilities, stress and emotions run high for families. Unfortunately, many families face the additional issue associated with a parent who heads to the hospital and attempts to return to their long term facility. Increasingly, California seniors are facing eviction upon their return to the long term care facility.
A few quick preventative tips to keep in mind:
1) Have a plan in place before parents reach the point of entry into a long term care environment.
2) Investigate long term care insurance while parents are healthy. A steady source of income is attractive for operators of long term care facilities.
3) For families, stay proactive with staff at a parent’s facility. Strong relationships with facility staff and administrators may just overcome economics.
