Is now the right time to explore the possibility of assisted living for a loved one? For a spouse, a parent, a grandparent.
Over the past couple of weeks, I have come across several social media postings that really reinforced the benefits of the assisted living waiver programs in Illinois and Indiana.
The programs are designed to benefit older adults of all incomes, especially low-income older adults, who need some assistance to maintain their independence. They provide a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home. At the same time, the states and the federal government save money. It’s smarter Medicaid.
The social media postings highlighted recent research studies that focused on older adults in the United States and their ability to survive and thrive in retirement.
iN2L is a user-friendly touch-screen technology that is being introduced to Gardant-managed assisted living and memory care communities in Illinois and Indiana.
Prepare for a Winter of Shivers, predicts the 2022 Old Farmers’ Almanac. Bone-chilling temperatures are expected across much of the United States. With the meteorological start of winter occurring on Dec. 1, please remember that cold weather can cause hypothermia and older adults are especially vulnerable.
