Wave of Aging
"Baby Boomers" Coming
Hufford of Tulsa's Visiting Nurse Association
Chamber meeting is June 7th at Library
Lara Hoffman provided
the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce with stats on hours lost by businesses
due to employees faced with conflicts as they provide care for their aging
parents. These impacts to business (& personals lives) will only increase
as "Baby Boomers" need for medical care and assistance increases
with age. She presented options available to families needing various levels
of care. She discussed the limitations of Medicare, then options for in-home
care by LPNs or non-medical assistants.
In response to a question,
there are options for long term care insurance but those familiar recommeded
planning ahead for that coverage as it would be difficult to obtain after
the care was already needed.
