In meeting with them, I explained that there were options that were designed for those with Parkinson’s and dementia; places that could provide total care and end of life care. In these options, care givers were experienced with these specific diseases and they had staff to resident ratios much improved over those found in nursing homes. And best of all, the settings are very home like. The cost for these options are similar to nursing homes.
Thank goodness for great friends when there is no family to find the best options for their loved ones.
