Health Care Costs and Advanced Planning

Healthcare costs was not part of my Retirement Plan!

Quality time with Family, travel and socializing with friends was the plan.

Now I require assistance. What are my choices? Will I run out of money?

How many Canadians follow this route?…..the answer is numerous!

Careable Healthcare Professionals have been helping Families, Power of Attorneys and Trust Officers to navigate these complex issues over the last 22 years!

As in any plan where you commence the process is key, and preferably sooner rather than later.

  • What is the person’s current Health Status and Prognosis?
  • What financial resources are available?
  • What is the time horizon?
  • Is staying @ Home important and part of the plan?
  • Is a well appointed (but expensive) Retirement Home feasible?
  • What if the medical condition deteriorates and the Retirement Home can no longer provide the required Level of Care?
  • Are care costs Tax Deductible?
  • What does Long Term Care Cost and how long is the Wait List?
  • What supplemental help can I bring in?
  • What are the costs of staying Home and bringing in care?
  • What level of Care can be expected from PSW? (non professional personal support worker)
  • How much Government supported Homecare is available?

These are just some of the questions we answer every day.

Kathleen’s Story: How she found Quality of Life for her Dad

My dad, John, suffered a severe and life-changing spinal cord injury in October 2016. By March of 2017, he had been in Complex Care for several months. The facility staff were doing their best given my dad’s very complicated case but I was troubled by the many medical and quality of life issues that weren’t being adequately addressed. Even though I was very pro-active about my dad’s care, I couldn’t make any real progress for him and I became frustrated and disheartened. My husband desperately searched Google for a care manager and emailed a number of companies. Carol at Careable Inc. (located in Toronto, Ontario Canada) got back to us right away. We had a reassuring conversation on the phone and within a week she met with us in Guelph Ontario, my dad and my dad’s head nurse to further discuss his case, problem solve and develop care and action plans that could be managed long distance by email, texting and phone calls.
