Caregiving Navigator 

by Ronald E. Roel 

The Navigator is a 6-step, action-oriented plan:

1. Preparing a Plan. Planning conversations with your spouse, children, and other loved ones, reviewing benefits, insurance coverage, financial resources, and legal documents.

2. Aging in Place—Safely and Independently. Preparing the home for successful “aging in place,” including home modifications for safety and comfort, for as long as desired and practical.

3. Living at Home with Some Assistance. Explaining home care options, government benefits, assistive devices, adult day care, and geriatric care management.

4. Long-term Care to End-of-Life Services. Making choices about when to provide higher levels of care at home or seek supportive long-term care in the community.

5. The End-of-Life Journey. Preparation for the end-of-life journey, including legacy planning, palliative and hospice care, doula services, and funeral arrangements.

6. Caring for Yourself, the Caregiver. Taking care of yourself, alleviating stress and finding support groups, programs, and practices to help you through loss.

Nursing homes are sad and lonely places to live, with very little personal freedom for residents. People living in nursing homes all too often feel forgotten. Will you join us in lifting up our elderly friends by reminding them that they deeply matter and are loved? Will you join us in sending handmade cards to a nursing home listed here or one of your choosing?

The catastrophe of COVID-19 deaths of long-term care residents has made clear what many of us have long known: The whole system is broken. Piecemeal fixes added on to a dysfunctional system have not worked in the past and they are less likely to solve the problems of a post COVID-19 future. The long-term care universe needs to be reimagined and rebuilt from top to bottom and from inside out.

Discover the power in solidarity, look around, join a social action group or form a new oneCall our representatives in Congress and let them know we are against United States military participation in the wars around the globe.  Hit the streets…

These citizens constantly experience heavy poverty, food insecurity and unsanitary living conditions, and often lack access to clean water {Sustainable Development goals (SDGs-1,2,3,4,8 and 17}. LCF focuses on creating community based programs serving Malawians in rural communities and finds sustainable solutions to improve living conditions of poor Malawians.
