An Aging Life Care Manager conducts an initial assessment

Over the course of 1-2 home visits, we can conduct an assessment. We identify the strengths of the current situation, and any areas of concern. Looking at family resources, we can recommend options based on personal preferences and budget. We can also give you a general sense of how things are likely to evolve over the next 6 months. This way you can make decisions within the context of a longer term perspective.

An Aging Life Care Manager creates a care plan

A care plan gives everyone peace of mind. It reflects the need for safety and quality of life within the bounds of family resources. A care plan guides current decisions about what types of assistance are needed and how they will be delivered. It also provides insights about probable needs in the near term future.

An Aging Life Care Manager makes recommendations for local services

Does your loved one need help with transportation? How about meals? Perhaps a slight remodel is in order to accommodate shifting abilities. Or maybe he or she needs assistance with light housekeeping, errands or paying bills. As the Monroe County and Ontario County expert in aging well, we know the local resources, eligibility requirements and  “personality” of the organizations. After completing an assessment, we can help you with referrals to the services most likely to be a good match.

An Aging Life Care Manager arranges for in-home care

It may be that living at home is no longer a safe option. Having someone come by twice a week to cook a few meals and do some light housekeeping may be all that is needed. Or, it could be that more support is required. The daily presence of a kind caregiver can assure that meals are eaten regularly and medications are taken as directed. You can choose part time or full time assistance. We can help you find a reputable service and manage the type of help needed.

An Aging Life Care Manager checks in periodically

It’s a relief to have knowledgeable people engaged. You have never been through elderhood before. We know the range of normal and can offer an invaluable perspective. You may have already experienced that things can change quickly in the aging process. By checking in periodically, we can mark changes and alert you if we feel that more support or attention is needed. As elder care professionals, we know the problems that commonly arise, and the most cost-effective solutions. Perhaps there are some mobility issues that are making life more difficult than it needs to be. There may be a simple device that could remedy the situation. Maybe memory problems are starting to be an issue. There are services to help with paying the bills, or balancing the checkbook. Perhaps medications are not being taken as as directed by the doctor. Through periodic check-ins, you receive peace of mind knowing the current situation remains the wisest choice.
