  1. 1. Senior Care: Should my mom go to a carehome, nursing home or need a24-hr live-in caregiver?Written by Connie Dello Buono motherhealth@gmail.com www.motherhealthcare.comAbout two-thirds of our 40plus generations are taking care of their mom and dadand most of them are doing it from another state while their parents are homealone. About 1 out of 4 needs long term care although we have more healthypopulation now that we are health conscious and with new research in health andscience. In 37 yrs, about 70% of our retiring population will receive socialsecurity income and most of us are not expecting much from it. With all thisstatistics, we are on our own trying to navigate caring for ourselves, ourretirement and our parents.Motherhealth Inc is an in home health care service that also takes care of thefamilies in the areas of home care and retirement. The many questions askedwhen caring for mom and dad are answered in the Senior Care ebook: 50questions asked when caring for your mom or dad at home or in carehomes April2011. We provide references about medicare, social security and list of providersin the bayarea for seniors from carehomes and nursing homes/rehabs to livingtrust lawyers and financial service companies offering tax-free annuities and otherfinancial service.By calling 1-800-4homeca or 408-854-1883, all nearby cities around the bayareacan get referral to a carehome or caregiver for live-in or 10-hr in-home healthcare. The in-home health care price ranges from $15 and up and the care homefrom $3500 per month and up depending on level of care. When your loved oneleaves a rehab depending on the care needed, the primary doctors would suggestthat 24-hr care is needed so that a live-in caregiver is then needed.Based on your accommodations at home and wishes of your mom withAlzheimers disease or Stroke or other medical conditions that need assistance indaily living, a carehome, nursing home or caregiver at home might be thesolution. For a caregiving at home, you can also do it with help from 2-hr perweek visits by an in-home health nurse, nurse practitioner, physical therapist,speech therapist, and other health professionals.For nursing homes, all these health care professionals are on-site. At times, whenyour loved one has terminal illness or refused to be cared for in the hospital andis deemed to be dying, wished to die at home and so the primary doctor wouldsay that your loved one needs hospice care. Hospice case nurses also visits yourhome 2-hr per week and your loved one still needs a 24-hr caregiver which is alsopresent in a carehome setting. In a carehome licensed for 6 elderly clients, thereare at least 2 caregivers who provide 24-hr care.For more info, contact motherhealthcare.com at 408-854-1883 motherhealth@gmail.com
