The MetLife Mature Market Institute(R) released a number of new long-term care and care giving publications in advance of Long-Term Care Awareness month in November. Helpful Hints, produced in conjunction with the National Alliance for Caregiving, are two-page informational bulletins that contain tips and advice for older Americans and for those caring for aging friends and relatives. The six topics discussed in the publications include: Advocating for a Family Member in Healthcare Situations, If Care is Needed at Home, Choosing an Assisted Living Facility, Choosing Adult Day Services, Caring from a Distance and Caregiving and Alzheimer’s. The publications provide tips on the individual topics and frequently asked questions and answers around each of the topics and provide a foundation for further research and education.
