National Healthcare Decisions Day

Assisted Living Locators, along with other national, state and community organizations, are leading an effort to highlight the importance of advance healthcare decision-making—an effort that has culminated in the formal designation of April 16thas National Healthcare Decisions Day (NHDD).

As a participating organization, Assisted Living Locators is reaching out to clients and their community to promote the value of advanced care directives (healthcare power of attorney and living will) andto initiate conversations about long term care planning.

We hope National Healthcare Decisions Day, sparks more families to start having thoughtful conversations with their seniors about not only their wishes for advance care directives, but also their short-and-long term care needs andthe options available.Various studies suggest that only about a quarter of all adults have engaged in this conversation.

Assisted Living Locators offers a full assessment of a senior’s needs and recommends a plan that provides the full continuum of care.  Our free community-oriented service allows you the freedom to access the best resources available. We take the time to ensure information is fully vetted and the most appropriate for your family. 

Today, seniors have many different options for care and housing including,in-home companion care, 55+ active older adult, independent retirement, assisted living and memory care communities and nursing homes.  We arealso a resource for short-term respite care, emergency discharge and out-of-town relocations and can help you navigate what can be an overwhelming amount of information.
