Preparing Your Home for Hospice

If the loved one we care for is in the advanced stages of a disease and we’ve decided that we would like them to be in as much comfort as possible in familiar surroundings, home hospice may be the right choice. However, arranging a loved one’s home or our own for a hospice stay takes some thought and preparation. We likely don’t want the place to look like a hospital, but we need to have all of the necessary equipment the loved one we care for requires.

Bathroom Safety for a Loved One with Late Stage Dementia

These days, about 80 percent of people with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) stay in their own homes with the support of family and friend caregivers rather than move to long-term care facilities. While aging in place can provide a loved one with a familiar, comforting space, it can also lead to challenges related to the safety of the home environment. Things around the house like stairwells, area rugs, medicine cabinets and knife blocks that were once a normal part of a loved one’s living space may now present new dangers with ADRD.

Helping an Older Loved One Stay Cool at Home During the Summer Heat

With summer temperatures reaching 90 degrees or over in certain parts of the country, COVID-19 guidelines that recommend staying at home may seem like a blessing. After all, it’s easier to keep cool in a well air-conditioned room than it is outside in the blistering heat. However, staying cool at home isn’t always as easy as it sounds, especially for older adults. According to the CDC, people aged 65 and older are at an increased risk for heat-related health problems such as heat stress, heat intolerance and difficulty regulating body temperature.

Tips to Avoid Foreclosure

When we fail to make our mortgage payments, foreclosure may occur. Foreclosure is the legal means that a lender can use to repossess, or take over, a home. When this happens, we must move out of our home. If our property is worth less than the total amount we owe to the bank, a deficiency judgment, which is a ruling made by a court against a borrower who does not have enough funds to pay back their loan, could be pursued against us. If that happens, we not only lose our home, but we also then owe our lender additional fees. Both foreclosures and deficiency judgments could seriously affect our ability to qualify for credit in the future.
