Elder Care Coordination

In our current health care system, patients and their families often depend on Hospital Case Managers and Nursing Home Social Workers to help them plan the next step on their health care journey.  These professionals are very knowledgable but the heavy workload makes it difficult to spend the time needed to fully explain health care options to their patients. This is especially true for patients with mild to moderate dementia.

For those family members charged with making healthcare decisions for their loved one while out-of-state, this lack of communication from the healthcare system can make it difficult to choose the right healthcare services. Our specialized Elder Care Coordinators can be your eyes and ears adding another level of accountability for a family member trying to manage health care services from afar.

Elder Care Coordination is an elder-centered approach that advocates for the patient choice. We do this by developing a Life Care Plan which takes into account each clients, healthcare, financial and social needs.

Elder Care Coordination is much more than provide a list of preferred healthcare companies. They fully understand the senior health care continuum and use that knowledge to help our clients make informed health care decisions. We fully explain the options so our clients (and their families) understand how each service fits their unique health care needs and elder centered Life Care Plan.
