Nichole’s personal story:
My first experience in senior care was very confusing and overwhelming. My grandfather had Alzheimer’s and was living at home with my grandmother as his sole caregiver. As his disease progressed, he began to wander and leave the house unattended. One winter night he wandered into the backyard and fell. He was unable to get up and had stayed in 40 degree weather for hours until my grandmother found him. We knew it was only a matter of time before he would do something like this again. Our family started exploring options. This was still an overwhelming process fifteen years ago when there wasn’t a multitude of care options. Our family didn’t know where to start or how to pay for my grandfather’s care. We found a place that we thought would be a good fit for him but once he moved in it was apparent that they were not equipped to care for someone with memory impairment. After looking at several other communities, we found a place that could handle some of the behaviors that go along with Alzheimer’s. This turned out to be a good move for us as he was able to have quality of life and we had peace of mind.
A couple of years later my grandmother had a bad fall. She was hospitalized and discharged needing short term care. We moved her into a skilled nursing facility where she received the necessary care but ultimately she was no longer able to walk. This resulted in the need of long term medical assistance. At this point, family funds were depleted providing for my grandfather and we had to look at financial alternatives for my grandmother. Eventually, we found the resources needed by planning for Medicaid and applying for Veterans benefits. Needless to say, this was a stressful and time consuming experience.
Through my professional experience, I have seen families go through similar situations trying to find the appropriate care for their loved ones. It is because of this that I founded Elite Senior Solutions and I am able to help others navigate the complicated and often frustrating path of senior care.
