The Caring Generation® What Are Levels of Care for Elderly?

Golden CO- Caregiving expert Pamela D. Wilson hosts The Caring Generation® podcast show for caregivers and aging adults. This coming Wednesday, April 28, 2021, the topic is What Are the Levels of Care for Elderly?

Wilson releases a new podcast in The Caring Generation series every Wednesday, sharing tips and conversations about aging, caregiving, and family relationships to help caregiving families plan for what lies ahead. The podcasts are available on Wilson's website and all major podcast sites like Apple, Google, and Spreaker.

What Are the Levels of Care for the Elderly?

This week on The Caring Generation, Wilson offers examples of the levels of care for the elderly. Tips are shared for aging adults about how to remain healthy and independent and for caregivers helping elderly parents at home.

As the care needs of aging parents increases, caregivers often ask about the levels of care for the elderly to understand what might happen next. Many adult children caregivers provide assisted living or nursing home care levels of support for aging parents in the home.

Care communities relate levels of care to the number of services offered to the elderly. These levels of care are associated with additional costs over the base rate to receive care. Additional fees for levels of care in a community can be as low as $300 or range into the thousands of dollars. On average, the monthly rate for assisted living communities ranges between $3,500 to $8,000 a month or more.

Adult Children Help Parents Remain in the Home

Because care community rates are out of the financial reach of many families, adult children provide care for parents or move them into their homes. Assisted living community staff cannot offer the extensive medical care that children and other family members provide in the home.

Aging parents diagnosed with multiple chronic diseases may need insulin management, wound care, assistance with feeding tubes, and other support provided by family members. Care once only offered in nursing homes is today provided by adult children and spouses.   

Interview with Ben Clincy – Paramedic and Comedian

On this show, Clincy shares insights into the life of paramedics, stories, and how his family life translates into having a soft spot caring for the elderly. He is currently completing his final semesters in nursing school and expects to graduate in 2022 and continue his career in the healthcare field.
