Taking Care of Your Loved Ones

We are an aging population and with age comes the need for new ways of living and new services. Homes become harder to maintain and a change to an easier place to live without the need for constant upkeep is often desired. People’s needs for physical care change and help with meals, cleaning, or bathing might be required. Memory can begin to fail and a safer place may become a necessity. Financial resources can be depleted and Medicaid services might become the only fall back for a family with an aging relative who requires 24 hour care. Many options are offered and it behooves those of us who are aging or have relatives who are aging to learn about the options available to us in this area.

On Tuesday, October 3 a panel of five representatives from five different organizations will share information about their facilities.

Susan Neustrom from Adult Day Care located at Gloria Dei in Downers Grove will share information on their services which are offered Monday – Friday from 7:30 a.m. - 5:45 p.m. for adults who cannot safely be left at home

Mary Ferguson from Aspired in Westmont will explain their independent living, assisted living and memory care options.

Becky Mayer from Lombard Place will help us understand the differences between assisted living, transitional memory care and memory care services.

Penny Barsamti from Heritage Woods will share how their assisted living services can stay in place once a person’s financial resources are depleted.

Alyson Simek will discuss the many options Brookdale offers for senior living care ranging from Independent Living to Skilled Nursing Care, and Home Health Services.

You will have an opportunity to ask questions of each representative about the services available from their organization and to gather information regarding contracts and cost.

Please join us to begin to inform yourself of a sampling of services that are available for the aging in this area.
