The people we serve each have unique needs. That’s why we take a holistic approach…one that includes physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, financial and legal needs and concerns.
While we recommend most new clients opt for the Holistic Health Assessment, we understand some clients may only want a specific service, or may desire to combine the Holistic Health Assessment with another service. Read on to see how we can help you or your loved one make wise health choices and enjoy the best quality of life possible.
Free Placement Service
An Aging Life Care Specialist will complete a free screening to determine the level of care recommended — such as independent living, assisted living, home care, memory care, rehabilitation, skilled nursing care, respite care and more — then provide you with a list of respected facilities that meet your geographical and financial preferences. Read more about this service.
Holistic Health Assessment
An Aging Life Care Specialist will visit the home to complete a holistic health assessment of the person or couple who may need care. Our specialist will evaluate medical needs, physical condition, home environment, safety concerns, legal issues and finances, then provide a comprehensive set of recommendations for ensuring the best possible quality of life for your loved one. (Fixed rate; couples rates may apply.) Read more about this service.
Aging Care Navigation
A team lead by an Aging Life Care Specialist will ensure your loved one receives individualized, expert care on an ongoing, as-needed basis. Services can include home safety screening, supervised trips to the doctor, pre- and post-surgery care management, and facility (such as nursing home) oversight, to name a few. Please read about the many other services we can offer if your loved one needs them. If you have different needs, let us know, and we’ll discuss other ways we can help you. There is an hourly rate for this service.
Condition Care Navigation
If your loved one of any age, from a child to an elder, has been in an accident or suffers from a chronic condition, and you’re unsure how to best care for him or her, we can help. Not sure how to make the house wheelchair accessible? How to transition your loved one from the hospital to the home after an accident? Which in-home help services you can trust? Call us. We’ll do everything we can to help you.
Medical Power of Attorney (POA)
An Aging Life Care Specialist will provide the paperwork, ensure it’s notarized appropriately, and act as the care recipient’s Medical POA. This means that after you are no longer able to make decisions for yourself, we will act on your behalf and communicate to the doctors what your wishes are. New clients must combine this service with the holistic health assessment; that’s how we learn what decisions to make for you when the time comes. Read more about this service.
One of the most difficult decisions you can face is whether a loved one is able to drive safely. Our DriveABLE Cognitive Screening Tool helps clients and their doctors understand whether and how their driving skills may have been compromised. When this screening is performed in the physician’s office, it can be covered by Medicare. To learn more, visit www.driveable.com. We can also perform this test in our office.
