I have a broad range of services and experiences to draw on to find solutions to the challenges you face in caring for your aging loved ones.
I help you find placement for your loved one in an an appropriate community, help you hire the right care to keep them at home, or provide you with what I call my Personalized Care Management Services.
For Placement I will assess what type of care and environment is most appropriate for your loved one. I will provide you with a list of the communities I believe would be the best fit. I will the schedule and accompany you on tours of the communities and help you determine which one to choose. I will then help you gather and fill out all of the necessary paperwork to move your loved one. I can arrange doctor appointments to get medical paperwork done or even accompany your family member to the doctor if needed. Once you have decided on a new location I will help simplify the move. I can help with hiring moving services and be present on move in day to ensure things go smoothly. Even after move in let me help you with issues that arise in the transitional stage of your loved one settling into their new home.
If you decide to keep your loved one at home I will do a comprehensive assessment of your loved ones needs. If you decide to hire a caregiver I will help you with interviews and the hiring process. Once the care staff has been hired I will ensure they understand all aspects of care that are expected and train them if necessary.
My Personalized Care Management Services include the above description of hiring home care but can also be so much more! If you decide you or other family members will be the care provider for your elderly loved one I can create a comprehensive care plan for you to follow. I will train the family to make sure you are all comfortable providing the care needed.
what can you expect?You can trust me to guide you and be your loved one’s devoted advocate in getting the very best care for your family’s situation.
First I will meet with you in person to discuss your loved one’s life and current needs. I will then assess your loved one to determine the best next step.
I will then give you a comprehensive list of your best options. After you decide how you would like to proceed I will join you on tours of communities, meetings with home care agencies, or hospice services.
If you choose to move your loved on into a community I will assist you with gathering the needed medical information and filling out the paperwork for admittance. I will also help you with the moving process.
After the move in process I am still your advocate! If things are not going how you hoped let me talk to the community and find out what can be done to meet your expectations. If a community is not the avenue you choose I will interview home care agencies or day care programs with you to select the best fit. Again, once care has begun contact me is I can help in any way! If hospice is the best option for you I can help you decide which hospice provider would be best for you and your loved one.
