Story

In 2010, Kathy Deinhardt Hill received a phone call from her parents’ best friend in Oregon. “You need to come and get them.” Thus started a nine-year journey, as Kathy moved her parents to Boise and became their primary caregiver. During those nine years, she learned the problems facing elderly dementia patients, their caregivers, and a community with few resources to help them.

We have plenty to talk about in this conversation. Join us on Zoom online or by phone.

  • With dementia, one size does not fit all.
  • There are effective strategies for dealing with dementia parents.
  • The problems with a “Place for Mom”—independent living, assisted living, memory care, nursing homes. What’s good, what’s bad.

In home health care—

  • Hospice care—not what you think it is.
  • Stay out of the hospital if you can.
  • Case Managers vs Care Managers
  • Making the decision not to treat…
  • Taking over the family—power of attorney, banking, social security, medicare…

What Kathy would have done differently—a long list.
