a good source for senior housing
Hi All - In 2007 I could no longer personally provide adequate care for my mother. I'd already done 4 years w/out any help and she now required 24 care. A social worker from Kaiser gave me a booklet called "New Lifestyles" - "The Source For Seniors". It was a Godsend for me to have this booklet because it listed a variety of facilities/homes based on the person's required level of care. It was like a yellow pages, but also listed things, for example stairs, willing to take ambulatory vs non-ambulatory, dementia, blind...
Here is the phone number and web address. They supposedly cover the entire US and Canada.
Through this booklet I found a very good place for my mom to live and it met her needs perfectly. As most caregivers know, things can change very quickly and one needs to act fast. This source cut my research time by several days. I hope this info will be of benefit to someone. Geri
