ST. LOUIS - May 1, 2017 - PRLog -- Selecting long-term care for a loved one comes with great stress and worry. Whether you're working with others or alone, the task can be daunting. Fortitude Health Solutions wants to help. Fortitude's CEO Stephen Capranica has created his list of Nine Must Have Questions based on his years of experience, healthcare professional feedback and client comments.

"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," Capranica added. "I've shared these questions with others in the caregiving field. The feedback I receive is overwhelmingly positive. Those same people have added these nine questions to their interviews with people and families."
