Because caregiving for a senior with cancer is extremely demanding for untrained relatives with their own responsibilities, the services of a live-in caregiver are highly recommended.

 Life Force Walks to End Alzheimer's Fundraiser

Life Force has specialized in providing live-in home health aides since 1989. Over the past 27 years we have seen the effects that Alzheimer's disease has had on many of our clients and their supportive family members. We personally have serviced hundreds who have battled Alzheimer's and join in the effort to provide support to combat this detrimental disease. More than 5 million Americans have Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to as many as 16 million by 2050.

In response, Life Force has organized a wrap-around fundraising event for the Walk to End Alzheimer's to generate awareness while raising donations for our team goal. The money raised for the walk will empower the Alzheimer's Association to continue to do what it does best: (1) Provide support to victims and to the family members who struggle alongside their loved ones. (2) Support ongoing research to find a cure.

Estate Planning Before Needing Live-in Care

Estate Planning Before Needing Live-in Care

My mother recently called me seeking help with updating her and my father's wills. Of course I agreed and was more than happy to help my parents review their wills. Since I was told that I would eventually become the executor of their estate, planning ahead would benefit both my parents and me.

Most of my experience is in providing live-in care services to the elderly and very little on the side of estate planning. I was very curious to go through the estate planning process myself, so this was the perfect opportunity for that experience.

As my mother and I continued to speak, I asked if she had in addition to the will a power of attorney (POA) and an advance directive, also known as a living will. She was not sure - which I knew most likely meant they did not have all the essential documents necessary. I suggested that the three of us meet with the attorney that originally drafted their will back in the '80s to ensure that we have everything we need. They both agreed.
