When Gratitude Turns to Concern

More than 40 million Americans are expected to take to the roadways, railways and airways as they head home for the Thanksgiving holiday. This time-honored tradition, one of the few occasions when multiple generations gather under one roof, is often the first time that adult children may observe unmistakable signs of physical or cognitive decline in aging loved ones. If you notice the following changes in routine household management and self-care, all may not be well with mom and dad. Is the mail piled up or unopened? Are there notices from creditors?

Study: Many Caregivers Spend $7K Annually Out Of Pocket

By Rachel Bluth, Kaiser Health News Denise Sleeper has sold her home, spent most of her retirement savings and quit her job to care for her husband since his Alzheimer’s disease struck two years ago. “It’s been like a tsunami in my life,” said Sleeper, of Gilford, N.H. She’s drained $168,000 from the couple’s retirement account since her husband, Scott, was diagnosed with the degenerative illness. At first, she cared for him at home, but he’s in a nursing home now. Sleeper gets by on his disability checks and the $32,000 left in their 401k. Stories like those are common among the nation’s 40 million family caregivers whose out-of-pocket costs are under-recognized, according to an AARP survey
