One of the largest hurdles to these choices is the "family meeting". Having been ion engaged in these with some extended family i will say that many of the boomers are not prepared for this leg of the journey. Proud, Independent and fully capable within their own minds is the wall of craziness. Being the young person within the discussion i was saddened by the fact that someone else was asking their elder to take advantage of assisted living. I was amazed at the care givings in the family offering advice and the individual receiving. Emotions were very high. I learned a very valuable lesson. Someone who may require services in group living is entitled to refuse them and live with the consequences. Advice, well know what you want when you get to that age. Have the funds or insurance to take care of the expenses in the manner in which you would like. Don't make those choices once you make the age where you need the services.

Great article Charlie Brown! Useful for many. I'm going to post this on facebook. A friend of mine just lost her dad and brother within 6 weeks of each other. Her mom is living all alone now and they need to help her transition.
