Elder Care

Many of us face the issue of caring for our parents or a loved one as they age. There are so many decisions that have to be made. Among these difficult decisions is whether the best care for your loved one will be provided at home or in a nursing home.

Joining us on this episode of Family Comes First is Nick Delillo. Nick shares his passion and mission to provide care for his mother at home rather than in a nursing home. He feels there is a certain level of comfort that is maintained by remaining at home, and that moving her elsewhere would be too overwhelming for her. The reality is, however, that there is a high cost of care in New York. Nick shares how his artwork supplement his mother’s income by painting to care for her.
