Click on the links below to go to that resource:

  • Assisted Living Connections provides an invaluable referral service for people from Ventura County to the San Fernando Valley, and they may be able to refer you to other sources outside their servicing area. It doesn't cost anything extra to leverage their expertise, so save time and frustration by talking to them first. They have in-depth knowledge of many of the regional facilities, from assisted living to memory care.
  • The National Center on Elder Abuse has a lot of information on recognizing elder abuse. Keep in mind, a lot of this is by children taking advantage of parents who have enabled and spoiled their children over the years.
  • Eldercareca.org helps with finding a skilled care facility in California along with a lot more resources.
  • Paying for Senior Care is a great resource for financial assistance other than paying out-of-pocket or with insurance.
  • AARP has some great information about what is covered, important policy features, pre-existing conditions, and policy shopping. PlanPrep can help with that, too.
  • The Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program is for federal U.S. Post Office employees. It has a lot of information about long-term care along with ways to apply for coverage. PlanPrep does not offer this coverage, but can help you in the process.
  • LongTermCare.gov has more in-depth information about long-term care costs with extensive resources.
