Elder Care Common Sense
Being over 65 is considered being in the last third of life. As this population segment increases, many of us will be lucky enough to experience it, either first hand, with parents or with friends. This brochure/web page attempts to share some of the wisdom and experience from and with parishioners of St Michael’s. It makes no pretense to be the definitive document on things to think about for Elder Care. Nor is this intended as an override of one’s own experience, intuition, common sense, or other expertise gathered.
This information was compiled by St Michael’s parishioners and shared at Senior Ministry forums with input from SAGE (Service and Advocacy for GLBT Elders). More information is available on other Websites, in books, and at primary sources. We do not cite external resources as they are easy enough to find, and more options evolve all the time. We suggest you use the internet wisely – especially regarding medical information - and that you seek professional advice in legal, financial, medical and spiritual matters.
Additional information as well as notification of errors, omissions or needed updates can be sent to the St Michael’s Office, to the attention of the Senior Ministry.
