Host: Lou Pierro with Guest, Katherine Rosenblatt
On this episode of Life Happens, hosts Lou Pierro and Katherine Rosenblatt discussed how no one “dreams” of spending their “Golden Years” in a nursing home, yet millions of people do.
With careful planning, however, we can live life independently, in the comfort of our own home, with the people and things we love all around us. Studies show that 70% of Americans age 65 and older will need Long Term Services and Supports (LTSS) at some point in their lifetime. The hosts discussed some steps to take towards mastering your destiny as an aging American.
Lou and Katherine also discussed EverHome Care Advisors, a powerful new company giving seniors and people with disabilities in the Capital Region real solutions in real time, enabling you or your loved one to stay at home and make your castle a health care fortress.
