How we help



​Individualized Assessment

Our care managers perform a comprehensive, multi-dimensional assessment which evaluates the older adult’s memory and cognition, health, daily functioning, safety, environment, support systems, and future planning.

Personal Care Plan

Our care managers develop a tailored care plan which includes recommendations for services necessary for the older adult to remain living safely at home, options available for other living arrangements, financial and legal planning tools needed to address vulnerabilities, problem-solving strategies, and other services and supports needed to enhance safety and quality of life.

Service Coordination and Monitoring

Our care managers interact with health care and other professionals to ensure high quality, cost-effective services and care are provided.  Our care managers monitor these supports to ensure that the older adult’s needs are met on an ongoing basis. As care needs change, our care managers reassess and make recommendations about how to adjust the care plan to make certain that the older adult’s needs continue to be met.

On-going Consultation

Our care managers can meet with family members with or without the older adult to review the older adult’s situation and provide consultation regarding services, housing, care options, and other concerns.

Liaison

Our care managers can serve as a communication resource and liaison for family members who cannot be present to keep them informed and involved -- our care managers can be the family’s local eyes and ears. Our video-conferencing capabilities allow out-of-town family to meet face-to-face with our care managers, as well as be present for medical appointments, as needed.
