Dealing with immediate uncertainty:
When a nursing home is the right option

Send a link to a friend

[May 10, 2012]  MOUNT PULASKI -- The Vonderlieth Foundation is hosting a workshop open to anyone interested. One of the most difficult aspects of entering a nursing home is the timing. The hospital calls to say your loved one will be released this afternoon and needs to go to a nursing home ... Where do you want them to send him?

You always promised your loved one you would never put her in a nursing home, but now you have no options. What do you do? Your loved one is suddenly not doing well at home alone, and you need to find out the options fast ... What all is involved in admitting from home? What should you look for in a nursing home? What does Medicare pay for? What about Medicaid?

Waiting until you need to make the decision is often overwhelming. Come for an hour of information, support and networking in the Vonderlieth Living Center Activity Room, 1120 N. Topper Drive, Mount Pulaski, on May 17 at 2 p.m.

There will be snacks, and a door prize will be given away.

For more information, call Jo Hilliard at 217-792-3218.
