Caregiving

Our services are as varied as the people we serve. We specialize in Live-In 24 Hour Care and provide short term care, respite, and hourly care. Our Caregivers have specific training in chronic illnesses including Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, stroke, diabetes, CHF, MS and full time bed care. After the Care Manager meets with the family, we create a detailed Care Plan based on the standards set by the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers. The Care Plan outlines all the tasks our client would like provided by our Caregiver and/or Care Manager, and is a living document that will change as our relationships evolve.

Geriatric Care Manager Services

Medical Advocacy
Organizing medications, participating in doctors’ appointments, asking the right questions and following up with medical or insurance providers to assure all the benefits and options are understood.

Mail Sorting & Bill Paying
Knowing what’s real and what’s advertising is becoming increasingly difficult. We can help prevent fraud by removing and shredding unsolicited mail. Managing household petty cash, assuring bills are paid in a timely manner includes writing and mailing checks, balancing the checkbooks, and reporting back to concerned family members.

Coordinating Household Maintenance
Managing an older home often includes emergency plumbing repairs, fixing leaking roofs, installing grab bars and stair railings. We can recommend and manage any home repair projects and prevent small problems from becoming big ones.

Regular Communication
Consistent email, telephone and face-to-face conferences with our clients and their families are an important part of our quality program. We don’t like surprises and neither do our clients so being proactive to alert family members of potential problems prevents unnecessary medical complications or household issues from escalating.
