MAKING THE DECISION
The decision to move into a retirement community is a big one. A decision not made any easier by just how many retirement communities there are today to choose from. While there are many factors to consider, including the specific services and amenities the retirement community has to offer, it is also important to consider the surrounding community and location as to whether this is a setting in which you would want to spend time. Our retirement communities guide has been developed to help you thoroughly think through your options to find the best option for you.
Taking a tour? Here are some things to keep top of mind when looking at a Retirement, Assisted Living, or Memory Care Community.
Compassion Fatigue for Caregivers
Caring too much can hurt. When caregivers focus on others without practicing self-care, destructive behaviors can surface. Apathy, isolation, bottled up emotions and substance abuse head a long list of symptoms associated with the secondary traumatic stress disorder now labeled: Compassion Fatigue.

Legal Planning for Dementia and Alzheimer’s Patients and Their Families
When you or someone you love is diagnosed with a progressive disease like Alzheimer’s or dementia, you face a number of serious considerations, and many of those considerations need to be made quickly before the disease has a chance to progress. In addition to decisions about care, doctors, medical treatments and therapies, this is the time to make some legal decisions to plan for the future. The sooner you create an estate plan, the greater the likelihood that the patient will be able to express his or her full wishes, ensuring that the estate plan is exactly what he or she would want. These are some tips and guidelines to help you through this process.
