This edition: Healthcare in the Home
Right On The Money, the "how-to" television series for Americans and their money, is hosted by financial expert Chris Farrell.
In the past, when a person became sick or disabled they were placed in a nursing home for the long-term care they needed. Today, people are living longer, technology has improved, costs have soared, and the number of people receiving at-home care has risen dramatically. People like Lorraine King, whose husband Paul suffered a stroke, are choosing to take on the role of caretaker. Right on the Money will ask our experts Jeff Bangsberg, a home care advocate, and Diane Piktialis, an elder care consultant, the important questions about at-home care and maintaining a quality of life for all those involved.
