Care Managers can help with a whole host of things. The main areas we have been called upon for support include but are not limited to:
Agency or Private Caregivers? Who will come when? How many hours are needed? What should they do while they are there?
When is it time to move? What are the different housing options available? Which type of housing option is appropriate? How much should it cost?
Will your aging loved one outlive their money? Questions about a will, trust, or Power of Attorney? Have you planned appropriately?
Has something happened that changed the course of your plan? Was there no plan in place to begin with? Need immediate help sorting it all out and determining next steps?
Having trouble deciding who will do what tasks for mom or dad? Family can’t decide on the best course or action or can’t agree on next steps?
Who is making sure doctor appointments are attended? What did the doctor really say or advise? Who implements any changes in treatment or medications? Are there cheaper drug options?
Are you getting good advice? Is what you read in that online article accurate? Being told something that just doesn’t sound right? Need someone who knows to just run a few things by?
Need someone to do a wellness check on a loved one? Looking for ways to stimulate or engage an isolated person? Concerned about depression, anxiety, or memory loss in a loved one?
Are medications becoming an issue? Refills not getting picked up or doses being missed? Medication mismanagement is one of the top reasons for hospitalizations in older adults.
Have meals gone from fresh, home-cooked recipes to frozen dinners or ham and cheese sandwiches? Concerned about proper nutrition or lack of diverse meals? Our Registered Dietitian can help with meal planning, menu, grocery shopping lists, pantry clean-out, and even cooking sessions.
Has the daily step count gone from 3,000 down to 300? Is mobility a concern? Is there constant worry about falls? Our Personal Trainer can work on strength, flexibility and fall prevention exercises.
Worried about isolation, depression or decreased social engagement? Has COVID only increased withdrawal from activities? Our activities specialist can implement a wide variety of engagement activities that are of interest to your loved one.
Need some questions answered or guidance as you go along? Just want to vent or need a sounding board? Our fully virtual TeleCare program is ideal for having an expert in aging literally in your back packet.

The service options in our “Wellness for Life” programs offer ongoing support, guidance, and assistance in all areas of life. These are long-term, ongoing options meant to significantly lighten your load. We also call these our “Peace of Mind” packages.
We call these our “Wellness for the Body” programs because they are focused on specialty areas that offer health and increased quality for the body. We offer programs that focus on Nutrition, Exercise, Medication Management, and Life Enrichment.
