Care Story

Beating the odds

Lisa was taking great care of her father, Joe, and made sure he got to dialysis three times a week. But after a while, it got hard to balance managing her dad’s health with her busy work schedule. With the help of a care professional, Lisa and her parents were able to get the compassionate, expert financial advice they needed, and all in Cantonese, her parents’ native language. As a team, they evaluated insurance options through Medi-Cal and Health SF, and applied for low-income housing. The waitlist was 4-5 years for an apartment, but with Wellthy's help, Lisa’s parents won the housing lottery and were in their new home by the year's end.

Frequently asked questions

Resources & events

  • Supporting the care of an ill or aging loved one can be extremely rewarding, but it’s an around the clock job that takes a mental, emotional, and physical toll over time. This is why it’s crucial for family caregivers to take advantage of respite care services, or short-term aid, to relieve the mounting stress that comes with caregiving.

    During this webinar, we’ll review what kinds of services are offered in respite care, how to recognize when you may be in need of some relief, as well as how Wellthy’s care team can support you in creating a caregiver respite plan.

  • It can seem like there are endless housing options for aging adults, so when it comes to finding the right home for your loved one the decision can feel daunting. The level of care, medical conditions, location, insurance coverage, and cost all play an important role when weighing options. By assessing these factors and having a basic understanding of the different types of homes that are out there, you can ensure your loved one lands in the right place and lives a fulfilling and healthy life as they get older.

Wellthy is here to help you find the right resources around Medicare’s annual changes, understand the nuances, and ultimately make the right decision for you or your family.

Proactively learning about the most common elder fraud scams, and taking steps to protect yourself and your loved ones from financial abuse will serve as the first line of defense to prevent falling victim to it, or stop a scam in progress. Initiating conversations with your loved ones about financial scams can be a tricky conversation to navigate, but Wellthy is here to help.

    During this webinar, we will review common elder fraud scams - from internet and telephone fraud, sneaky billing practices, to even friends and family fraud.

Join our workshop to learn more about aging in place and how Wellthy can support.

  • Over the last decade, there has been a rise in mental health concerns surrounding heightened anxiety and depression levels in people from all walks of life.

It’s important to be cognisant of this condition and the ways it can be managed in a safe, productive manner.
