San Francisco, California (PRWEB) August 06, 2014
Passare, Inc., a trusted and relevant source for End-of-Life planning and management, today announced the company has developed and published a comprehensive resource on long-term care titled “Long-Term Care Options and Planning.” This is a recent eBook in Passare’s ongoing series, which aims to help readers explore options, understand the process, and ultimately plan for End-of-Life management.
Why Long-Term Care Matters
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that 70% of people turning age 65 can expect to use long-term care. With a majority of adults impacted, long-term care planning is one consideration to ensure a graceful transition to the next phase of life.
According to the eBook, long-term care provides a certain freedom to people who can no longer manage everyday tasks on their own due to aging, chronic conditions, disability, or other factors. Long-term care providers assist people with routine tasks such as eating, bathing, and dressing, with the goal of helping people live as independently as possible.
The guide discusses a wide range of long-term care options to fit each individual’s unique needs. Some include: independent living with in-home care, assisted living, skilled nursing care, home-based care, private nursing, community-based care, supportive housing programs, adult day services, senior centers, adult foster care, assisted living centers, retirement communities, nursing homes, and hospices to name a few.
Not only does Passare’s How-to Guide for Long-Term Care Options and Planning describe the multitude of available options, it also highlights different government programs to assist care planning. This resource comes with a 3-page planning checklist and a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section to help people better understand and navigate long-term care options. The guide was written by Passare, in collaboration with Passare expert contributor, Karen Kelleher, an End-of-Life healthcare professional specializing in the field of Geriatrics.
