How to Choose the Right Elder Care Help for Your Parents, Freedom, Wisconsin

Most people are caught off guard when the signs of aging start to become prominent in their parents or another elderly loved one. Figuring out what you can do can sometimes be tricky because although you want to help, you also don’t want to take away your loved one’s independence and control over their own life. Below are a few tips you can gently start implementing to ensure your loved one receives the elder care they require.

3 Tips for Getting Elder Care Help

1. Discuss What Your Loved One Prefers

If you haven’t already had the talk about elder care, sit your parents or other loved one down and discuss what they want. Knowing their preferences will help you decide on the right facility to meet their needs. If they don’t want to discuss leaving their home, let them know you are worried about their health and what could happen if they continue living alone.

2. Seek Out Expert Adviceelder care freedom pulaski wi

Social workers, geriatric care managers, and even elder law attorneys can help you through all the stages of finding and paying for assisted living. They can help you plan for the move, make it easier on your loved one, and come up with a financial arrangement that will take care of all their needs.

3. Look at Facilities That Meet Your Loved One’s Clinical Needs

After you have worked out what your family can afford and what exactly your loved one’s medical needs are, you can begin looking at facilities. When narrowing down your options, consider whether they have the ability to care for all your loved one’s health issues. For instance, if your parent or grandparent is experiencing signs of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, you should mark out any places on your list that don’t specifically offer memory care.


If your parent or grandparent has always had an affinity for the rural lifestyle, then Country Villa Assisted Living might be the perfect elder care facility for them. At both their Freedom and Pulaski, WI, locations, they offer quality physical and mental health care that is combined with a country home atmosphere.
