An informative article about the costs of dementia care, and the value of a daytime haven like The Ivey for so many families. "Don’t pay for more — or less — care than you actually need. Is around-the-clock care in assisted living absolutely necessary, or could you invest in...services for the hours your loved one needs the most help? Maybe you just need coverage while you’re at work. If so, adult day care is a highly affordable option...and provides the added value of social engagement for your parent." http://www.theivey.com/2017/04/12/the-true-cost-of-end-of-life-care/
