Elderly Care: A Guide for Families New to Caring

I want to share this helpful guide written for families new to caring for elderly loved ones.

The guide is called “ Elderly Care: A Guide for Families New to Caring”. It offers plenty of valuable information such as:

  • Getting started on finding care, understanding different and varied care options available, as well as costs and legal considerations when planning for elderly care.
  • Home modifications and assistive technologies that can improve the daily living of elderly family members.
  • Support networks and charities that offer help and support for both people in need of elderly care and their families.
  • Other helpful resources and tools to help family members begin to find the best possible care option for their elderly.

My OFA Origin Story

I am doing Russell Brunson’s One Funnel Away Challenge at the moment and the mission this week is to become a publisher – we have a choice to Make Live videos on facebook or Instagram, publish podcasts or write posts on medium.com every day for a year!! – I have chosen to write & here is an extract from my first story.

Trish & Lesley New Zealand HNov 2017In 1993, at the age of 46, I left my home in the north of Western Australia to move to the Eastern States of Australia where most of my new husband’s family lived. We were both in a good financial position & I was looking forward to having a nice home where it wasn’t so hot and starting a home business. We settled in South East QLD, buying an abandoned crayfish farm because Stu wanted to try aquaculture.

What started out as an exciting new venture turned sour in just a few years when we ran out of money and all the hours of physical labour, trial & error, study and plain hard work felt like a complete waste of time & effort to me. We’d tried to sell several times, but each sale fell though, leaving me frustrated at my husband’s expectations & it was hard to keep a good relationship going when we had such different views of what was important.
