If you are finding yourself caring for both your children and your parents,
you are a member of the sandwich generation. You may feel that there are
not enough hours in the day or enough money in your wallet to take care
of all the demands on you.
If one of the worries keeping you up at night is how to pay for long-term
care for your parents, you may want to go visit an elder law attorney.
There are options other than raiding your retirement savings to take care
of the costs of long-term care for your parents. An elder law attorney
can help you evaluate those options and see which one may be right for
you and your parents.
Long-term care may be a difficult subject to bring up with your parents.
Who wants to think about no longer being independent and able to care
for themselves? However, the earlier you and your parents start looking
at long-term care options, the greater the number of options there are
for assistance. It is never too late to seek the assistance of an elder
law attorney, because help is available even when long-term care options
have to be put in place immediately, it is just that some options you
or your parents may have preferred are no longer available at that point.
If you are one of the time pressed members of the sandwich generation,
do yourself and your parents a favor and schedule an appointment with
an elder law attorney today. Just finding out that there are viable options
for assistance could help bring you some peace of mind and a ray of hope.
