The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, Writes About Common Signs That Indicate It May Be Time For A Loved One To Go Into Skilled Nursing Care.
Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, shares information that helps caregivers consider the importance of skilled nursing care for loved and when to consider such care.
DECATUR, GA, July 8, 2022: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on the law firm’s website entitled “When It’s Time To Consider Placing A Loved One In Skilled Nursing Care.” Ms. Pawley elaborates on a few of the instances that would make it important to consider reassessing the living situation of an elderly loved one.
Pawley states, “One of the most difficult decisions facing family members who are caregivers is if, and when, it is time to place a loved one into skilled nursing care.” She continues, “There are times when placing a loved one in skilled nursing care is essential, not only for the safety and health of the loved one, but also for the health of the caregiver.”
According to Pawley, “Even if the family member has long-term care insurance, he or she may be reluctant or resistant to leave their home. Yet, if they are immobile and unable to perform basic care and need to be physically moved, it could become dangerous for both the caregiver and the loved one to continue in the home environment.”
“If your loved one has late-stage Alzheimer’s or dementia,” Pawley suggests, “it may be time to make the move to skilled nursing care. Even though many with Alzheimer’s can live at home for years with good support, in the late stage, it may become difficult to feed, change, bathe and move them without the help of full time medically trained staff.”
