Elder Care Town Hall — Watch the replay
On June 27, New Jersey 101.5's Eric Scott led a conversation about one of the most difficult and complex transitions many adults ever face — the time when they take responsibility for caring for their own parents.
There are no shortage of questions to consider: Can my parent live alone? If not, should my parent live with me? Can I afford ongoing care? How do I know if and when my parent needs extra help? Is this just forgetfulness, or dementia? What rights do I have, and do they have? What help is out there?
Thursday night, we took your questions live on New Jersey 101.5 FM and via Facebook at Facebook.com/NJ1015.
Our experts in the New Jersey 101.5 studio were:
• Mary Catherine Lundquist, coordinator of Care2Caregivers at Rutgers University
• Linda Ershow-Levenberg, certified elder law attorney and managing partner at Fink, Rosner, and Ershow-Levenberg
• Dr. Priti Gujar of Geriatric Treatment Resources
ALSO: Representatives of Care2Caregivers and Fink, Rosner, and Ershow-Levenberg were in our LIVE FACEBOOK CHAT to answer your questions about finding resources, pursuing care and cutting through bureaucracy.
