Fortunately, the wonderful website Fiscal Tiger has put together a terrific starter resource in its Long Term Care for Seniors and People with Disabilities: A Comprehensive Guide. It’s free, and it will give you a solid grounding in the basics—as well as links to many resources for further information.
This is the last in our series on finances for the elderly, particularly after a diagnosis of dementia. You’ll find the others here:
- Financial planning in the wake of a dementia diagnosis
- Care costs: what to plan and budget for
- Long-term-care planning
I hope you find this material helpful; it was provided for us by Heidi Paris, Fiscal Tiger’s Outreach Coordinator. While this site offers financial advice for virtually anyone, we found its coverage of issues of importance to dementia patients and their families particularly useful. Have questions? Heidi suggests contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
