These are two separate questions that should be answered separately with a minimum of 200 words and include an in text cite.
1)You are a MFT (in CALIFORNIA) who receives a call from a family that you worked with about 2 years ago. The family is composed of an unmarried male and female who are currently discussing the possibility of placing the man’s mother in a skilled nursing facility. Prepare a posting in which you describe the advice you would provide to the family about financing options for the nursing home placement. Consider which sources of income would be considered in this example. Also consider the role of referral to other professionals.
2)You are a MFT working with a family composed of same-sex partners. Partner # 1 has come to realize that his/her elderly father is in need of additional support with living (the father recently experienced some falls and had two small kitchen fires in his apartment). The partners discuss moving the father into their large home, but have concerns as to how the father would come to terms with their relationship. In consideration of the information on long-term care financing provided in this unit, how would you help the couple to identify the best alternative for the elderly family member?
