By: Fortitude Health Solutions
"Families often feel responsible for their loved ones and I understand that," said Capranica. "While they might not be specifically calling for my help, I wanted to provide something for them. Even if we're not working together, I still feel a responsibility to help."
Fortitude's Nine Must Have Questions to identify needs and financial situations are:
• What are my loved one's values?
• What do they want?
• How involved is the care required? (Hours/Days)
• Is your loved one forgetful due to dementia or Alzheimer's?
• Does your loved one require care due to a medical condition?
• Is your loved one lonely and in need of companionship?
• Does your loved one want to be around more people their own age?
• How is the required care going to be paid for? (Medicaid, Medicare, Supplemental Insurance, Private Pay)
• Does your loved one have any plans in place for their long-term care?
"Each time I talk with a family or person seeking additional healthcare these nine questions are part of our initial conversation,"
