Madison, CT (PRWEB) July 22, 2008
As their parents age and lose functioning ability, the nation's 76 million baby boomers increasingly feel the worrisome responsibility of eldercare. And if the choices were not difficult or gut-wrenching enough, winning the cooperation of aged parents can be even more exasperating.
A new website, http://www.Topeldercares.com, has prepared a free eBook, "The Practical Guide to Selecting Eldercare Facilities," to help make that process easier. This easy-to-read 17 page guide features practical tips on how to select the best eldercare facility for every type of situation. It covers everything from what types of facilities to consider, how to make the transition smooth, and what to do to help elders adjust and thrive in their new homes.
Useful chapters in the Guide include pros and cons of different types of facilities - from independent living to skilled nursing. A helpful analysis of financial issues brings adult children up to speed on the critical topic of how to pay for eldercare. Adult children will appreciate the useful section that explains how to get aging parents to accept that they need more help. Detailed checklists on how to evaluate a facility, with extensive tips culled from Medicare publications, round out the booklet.
