Without long-term care insurance or a large savings, many people will receive financial assistance from state government agencies. – See more at: http://igrow.org/healthy-families/aging/paying-for-nursing-home-care/
About First Step to Care
We created this website to help you avoid some of the stresses we experienced during a crisis situation while caring for our grandmother. We faced urgent decisions regarding her care, but we didn’t know where to find the information to make smart choices. Our goal is to provide a starting point to help you find information, services and other resources in your search for senior care. Our hope is that this site can provide you with a first step to finding reliable care for your loved one.
