Aging with Dignity-preparing for long term care
As medical science progresses and Baby Boomers age, there are an increasing number of folks who will need long term care services before they die. This class will cover the intricacies of what Medicare will pay, when Medicaid will pay, when private insurance is appropriate and all the other options a person should consider when planning for their own care, or care of an aging family member. Long term care does NOT have to be a nursing home -- know your choices, learn the costs, be prepared to age with dignity. Instructor, Dr. Stana Martin, has a PhD in Communication. Due to family experience, she left full time university teaching to help families learn about, and prepare for caring for elder family members.
