Talking to Parents about Senior Living Options with Laine Dipasquantino

4 Mar

Laine Dipasquantonio spoke to our group this week about options in long term care for an aging parent.  Laine co-founded Senior Living Specialists of Colorado after having managed her own mother’s care and living situation. She now helps other families find their best options, in terms of amenities, location and budget to find a good fit when long term care is selected. Of course long term care settings are one of many options to consider.  Families must evaluate parents’ needs and wishes and factor in financial planning.  Laine has toured 100s of senior residences and is active with the Colorado Gerontological Association, the Colorado Chapter of the Alzheimers’ Association and numerous other agencies.  Contact her at laine.dipas@gmail.com or at 303-949-6249.  Her placement services are free, and she has lots of information and referrals to offer as well.  Also visit her siteLaine P and group discussion

Laine shared a link to an AARP article on ideas to introduce the topic to get the conversation started.
