Talking to a loved one about home healthcare and the many alternatives can be a very difficult task. They don’t want to accept the reality, but as a concerned loving family member, you know that this conversation needs to happen before it’s too late.

You may ask yourself many questions. How do I start this difficult conversation? How am I able to weigh in without making them feel like I am pushing them to do something they don’t want to do? When is it the right time to start to talk about this?

What if…
Household bills not paid up?

    “TLC is the BEST! My dad had Alzheimer’s, and I used various home care agencies with him (had assorted problems with all of them). When my aunt started needing care – around 4 years ago – I decided to give TLC a try, as the company was compatible with her Long Term Health Insurance. I have only one word to describe them after all this time – FANTASTIC! They are the most caring, connected, compassionate people around. I trust the girls completely with my aunt. I don’t know what I would do without them! I recommend them 100 million%, without reservation. They go above and beyond!”
