==================================

The prospect of putting a parent in a nursing home is stressful enough without worrying about how to pay for it. But preparing well in advance can make the decision easier.

The first step in creating a care plan is to divide the tasks among family members. Each child should be given an assignment, such as:

—Interview nursing home staff for details on cost and services;

—Work with a financial planner to create a strategy for managing expenses and assets;

—Meet with an attorney to structure legal documents.
