Assisting elders with finances, Medicaid, increases independence

Most people understand and accept that as they age, they may not be able to care for themselves as easily as they did when they were younger. However, they likely hope that they'll be able to sustain as independent a life as possible. Adult children of older people here in Georgia often worry about their parents' finances, thinking that their parents may not have the same cognitive abilities to make sound financial choices. Though Medicaid helps cover health-related expenses, older people are often subject to financial abuse from many potential sources. Experts have advice for those who want to protect their elderly loved ones.

Special needs planning is only one aspect of special needs care

Parents who have a child with developmental, physical or other challenges are often some of the most caring parents in Georgia or anywhere else in the country for that matter. It takes a great deal of patience and planning to provide the best life possible for a special needs child. Special needs planning is an integral part of that endeavor, but it represents only one aspect of providing adequate care for him or her.

A Medicaid waiver could mean avoiding a nursing home longer

Growing older comes with a lot of pros like wisdom and experience, but it also comes with some significant cons, such as failing health, declining physical and mental acuity, and more. Georgia residents experiencing the effects of aging may begin to need additional help with daily tasks, but are not yet ready to go into a nursing home. It is possible that a Medicaid waiver could help make it possible to receive benefits and remain at home as well.
