Allison O'Shea on Taking Control of Our Aging Decisions
Allison O’Shea has over 18 years of direct hands-on experience working with seniors and their families. This experience has given her the knowledge to be a reputable voice in the confusing and overwhelming world of aging.
In this episode, we discuss the 5 main questions Allison thinks we need to be considering if we are becoming caregivers for an aging loved one… or, if we’re at retirement age, we need to be answering to maintain control of our decisions.
Questions such as:
- Who is my support system?
- What is my financial situation?
- Do I know what options are out there?
- Am I communicating to my support system?
- Am I listening to my support system?
Allison’s information is American – some of it may work where you live… at any rate check out local resources and government programs and insurances where you are.
A few tech glitches, please be kind.
