When adult children have to make decisions about their parents' living arrangements, difficult choices make have to be made. Bowers considers independent living at home, home sharing, assisted living, continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs), and nursing homes. Consideration of financial ramifications might include private payment, long-term care insurance, reverse mortgages, veteran's benefits, and medical assistance programs.
