Mcare247 for Family & Friends

Getting the Facts – Straight

Senior citizens fear moving into a nursing home and losing their independence more than death, according to a Clarity 2007 “Aging in Place” study. The study also found that among baby boomers, 82% fear their parents will be mistreated in a nursing home, and 89 percent worry their parents will be sad.

The goal is to help seniors live safely at home and feel protected and healthy while still maintaining their autonomy. For adult children, the goal is peace of mind. Therefore, many adult children, like you, get some peace of mind by moving their parent or senior family member into their own home.

Economically speaking, 30% of adult children in the United States contribute financially to their parents’ care. The National Center on Care Giving says that unpaid family caregivers will likely continue to be the largest source of long-term care services in the U.S. and are estimated to reach 37 million by 2050, an increase of 85% from 2000.

But in the face of longer life spans and chronic illness, the costs of an aging parent can mean financial peril for the rest of the family. So often, adult children end up ignoring their own savings and retirement accounts or, worse, go into debt, because they’re taking care of their parents. And if you jeopardize your own finances now, you risk putting your children in the same tough spot down the line.
