Few things in life are as difficult or challenging as making health and home care decisions for a parent suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's disease. Siblings and loved ones may disagree whether the parent requires nursing home, assisted care living, in home service or another level of care.
Sometimes adult children and family members cannot resolve short- and long-term care issues on their own. Several other issues can arise when determining the best care for parent. It's not uncommon for parents and siblings to disagree about the best path forward. Fortunately, Washington State provides many caregiver sources, so families have many informational and support options for aging parents.
