In the world of being a mid-lifer and anticipating the enjoyment of being an empty-nester, here comes a surprise; my parents are in need of some serious help…. Who, what, where do I go? Call me.
As a geriatric care manager my role is to help guide you through the confusing and overwhelming role of elder health care by providing consultations and referral assistance specific to you and your aging loved ones needs. All too often families have wasted their time calling the wrong resources and asking the wrong questions. Regardless of where you live there is an elder care system in place, but you need to know who to call and what to ask. When you call me, you get you to right place with the resources you need. My initial assessment with you and your elder loved one gets me the specifics information I need to provide a plan of care that will include individualized recommendations and resources to ensure a safe and secure environment, whether it be in the home or in a senior living community.
The reality of aging may take us by surprise, especially with our loved ones. As a neutral partner in the equation I can see the picture through a different lens. I can ask those difficult questions and get to the heart of the matter. Too often families wait until crisis mode arises to call for help. When a consultation is done earlier and a plan of care put into place, emotions can be far less heightened and good healthy decisions will be made. Aging is inevitable, how you can be prepared for the changes in your older parent, by accessing the resources that are the best in your situation, I am here to help—call me.
