A client has saved for years and has a sizeable nest egg. The same client needs a higher level of care to maintain health; a move from an independent living community to assisted living. Concerned about not leaving a legacy to charities, this client hesitates to spend money on care. This is a common conflict with older generations. Many older adults believe that leaving a legacy is important and that they should not spend money on their own care instead leave money to charities or family. By having a discussion about the importance of maintaining health, concern about associated costs may be overcome when a realistic discussion is held about the realities and complications to health if appropriate care and attention is not provided.
