A caregiver and a man living with Alzheimer's

Can getting Alzheimer’s care in a foreign country be a smart alternative?

 

How can getting eldercare for someone with Alzheimer’s be better in Peru? To begin with, the cost of living is so much lower in Peru than in the United States. Instead of $600 a day, Barabra Drakes father lived like a king on $600 a month.

If you’re listening to this episode, you may be facing terrifying options for a loved one. The cost of care in countries like America, Canada & the United Kingdom can be prohibitively expensive. Many families are faced with choices that are unacceptable but they don’t have better options.

It is possible to retire outside the United States. It takes careful research and planning but it may be an option worth considering. Barbar’s blog can help you start your research correctly and maybe you too will have a Peruvian Alzheimer’s Adventure with your loved one.
