Long-Term Care Solution Found in Mexico
Gina, a middle-aged working woman with a teen-aged daughter she has been raising as a single parent, faced a horrible dilemma. Her mother Bertie, a widow living on social security, had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. As her mom’s symptoms got worse, Gina, an only child, did her best to care for her mother by moving Bertie into her own apartment and driving her to an adult daycare center. But eventually, after a series of crises involving her mother’s health and behavior, it became clear that full-time long-term care was required.
When Gina began to explore the affordable local options, well, there just weren’t any. Medicare wouldn’t pay for residential care and Gina had to work to support herself and her own daughter, so quitting her job and staying home all day wasn’t an option.
Desperate to find a solution, Gina would have considered other options for her mother who no longer recognized family members, but she didn’t know that long-term care in Mexico might have been a compassionate solution. The English Speaker’s Guide to Medical Care in Mexico offers support for people seeking long-term care for dependent family members, travelers, expats, business people and those seeking to reduce medical costs or find reputable specialized care. This book will introduce you to care in Mexico, where the elderly are treated with respect, as an option for long-term care. With lower costs and quality care in pleasant surroundings, Gina might have found a solution for her mother in Mexico that worked for everyone involved.
