The Dos, Don’ts, & Costs of Hiring a Home Aide to Help You or Mom & Dad Maintain Independence

AaronSchindlerBreakfast featuring Home Care Presentation by Care Concierge, NY at Scarsdale Synagogue
SUNDAY, MARCH 1, 9:30 A.M.
Home care Doesn’t Have to Mean Homebound: The Dos, Don’ts, & Costs of Hiring a Home Aide to Help You or Mom & Dad Maintain Independence.

Presented by Aaron D. Schindler. CFP, Owner of Care Concierge NY

The U.S. Government says that Americans turning age 65 today have a 70% chance of requiring 2-3 years of paid long-term care services. The average cost of 3-years of full-time home care via an agency in Westchester could be more than $500,000. Adult caregiver children with full-time jobs miss an average of
7-hours a week of work to manage mom and dad’s care.

Highlights of the Presentation Include:
What are the signs that you, your spouse, or your parents can benefit from in-home care?
How to initiate the home care discussion between parents & adult children? Remember, a well-matched home aide can help an elder maintain independence, get him or her out of the house, and relieve adult children.
Home aide as companion: In addition to helping dress, shower and assist with other activities of daily living, a well-matched caregiver can drive an elder to appointments, food shop and cook with him or her, walk the dog, and participate in hobbies. Keep busy! Take the load off a spouse and adult kids.
How to hire a home aide? Agency versus direct hire via Care Concierge NY.
How much does home care cost?
How to pay for home care? Medicare, Medi Gap and most health insurance plans will hardly pay for home care. How to file a long-term care policy claim effectively?
Family caregivers: Emotional & financial wear & tear on adult children and spouses are common. Learn potential lost opportunity costs.
Tips for preserving consensus & harmony between adult children while caring for mom and dad.
Early eldercare planning: How 30 to 60-year olds can incorporate long-term care planning into retirement plans?
Local long-term care resources: Geriatric Care Managers to adult daycare.

Cost per person: $10
