FOH Employee Assistance Program October 2020 Campaign
Attending to Aging Loved Ones
While we understand that aging is an inevitable aspect of life, how it will affect our older loved ones and what it will entail for us is difficult to know. We tend to think of aging in terms of the distant future, using words like eventually, someday, and one of these days when considering the prospect of becoming a caregiver. Unfortunately, though, getting older doesn’t just happen in one day and caregiving often sneaks up slowly over time. And for many adults, looking after an older family member exists in parallel to taking care of their own children. Although caregiving can be stressful and exhausting at times, you don’t have to do it alone. Get the support you need from your Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and discover just how rewarding the caregiving experience can be for you and your older loved ones.
This issue of Campaign discusses:
- Guidance on caring for older adults
- Ways to be a more positive, forgiving, and grateful caregiver
- The importance of self-care

In addition, we’ll discuss activities of daily living, how to qualify for low or no-cost coverage, LTC insurance alternatives and Medicaid planning, as well as LTC during retirement.
