Monday Morning Speaker: Starla Bryant
Opportunities in Assisted Living and Elder Care
Elder Care Advisor
Alexandria Assisted Living Locators
If you haven't planned for senior living care, you aren't alone. Few people do - either because they don't think they'll need it or because they want to save their assets for their children and believe that government subsidies will cover any care they need. This doesn't mean they can't afford suitable care; it just means the choices may be more limited. Fortunately, just like the variety in settings, styles, and amenities, senior living residences are available at a variety of price points.
Costs vary with the residence, apartment size, and types of services needed. The basic rate may cover all services or there may be additional charges for special services. Most assisted living residences charge on a month-to-month lease arrangement, but a few require long-term arrangements.
Assisted Living Locators is a FREE referral service. Their professional Eldercare Advisors provide personal assistance in locating the right options for your elderly loved one. An Eldercare Advisor can reduce your stress by providing a free consultation and help you find the right Home Care, Alzheimer’s/Dementia Care, Assisted Living, Nursing Homes and Retirement Communities.
To meet this growing need for care, new career opportunities have emerged for a variety of roles in the elder care community.
Learn more about the range of these roles, and the skills needed to work in this field.
