Peter and Mary were happily married for 52 years; they had children and grandchildren. Peter was a healthcare professor, and Mary was a hospice nurse. They both retired at age 65 years and were living well. They stayed active by working at a local store as greeters and members of the conflict resolution team.
Over time, Peter saw that Mary had developed some memory issues at age 78 years as she forgot dates, names of days in the week, and even the names of their grandchildren. The couple decided to see a gerontologist who concluded that Mary’s language skills and mental abilities had significantly diminished after a series of tests, and she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Peter became the caregiver at home, even though he was deteriorating in age, too. Recently, he developed knee problems and had pain in different parts of his body.
Peter hired a home health aide to assist. However, Mary’s problems became severe, and he had to decide. Peter was no longer able to take care of Mary as his condition also worsened. He needed help because he was unable to do things for himself. The retirement funds were dwindling fast, and they would need assistance from family members and friends.
Consider the following questions:
What long-term option and specific services would you recommend for both Peter and Mary?
How would you determine those needs?
What are the possible sources of funding for Peter and Mary?
How could Peter and Mary have better planned for their later years?
What is your plan to prepare for the possibility of your own long-term care?
