Some of our readers here in Lakewood might be surprised to learn that despite the need for proper health care as you age, some people in our state do not take the time to draft a care plan. This means that these people are often unprepared when a serious medical issue arises.
This was partially the case for an elderly Arden Oaks couple when a falling accident caused a spinal injury that required several weeks of rehabilitation afterwards. The injuries suffered by the 69-year-old woman in this situation might have been lessened or prevented altogether had she had in-home care. Now, her story stands as an example for our Southern California readers about the importance of having a life care plan.
