Business man signing a contract. Close up of two business partners signing a document for agreement contract - business etiquette, congratulation, merger and acquisition concept

If your aging parent or elderly loved one moves into an assisted living or nursing home you will be presented with an admission agreement.  An admission agreement outlines all of the rights and responsibilities for both your loved one and the community.  It’s very important that you review and understand the admission agreement – it’s probably best to have an elder care attorney familiar with these admission agreements review it with you.  There are a lot of emotional and financial issues associated with a move into an assisted living or nursing home.  Don’t be caught off guard by the provisions in the admission agreement.  Advocate for yourself and your loved one.

I will talk a whole lot more about admission agreements in future episodes to highlight some of the traps and pitfalls associated with them.  In the meantime I hope you get a lot of value out of this overview.
