Whether it’s a change in cognition, physical mobility or if you or your loved one is no longer successfully managing things well at home, we can help assess your current living environment.
We’ll recommend alternative placement in either an Independent Living Facility where they deliver meals to your apartment or you can eat in their congregate dining room, roam their gardens and come and go as you please; or an Assisted Living Facility and receive as little or as much help that they offer with medications, housekeeping, trips to local attractions, et-cetera; or a memory care facility where they will have activities to stimulate your loved one’s cognition; or a nursing facility where nurses can around the clock monitor your loved ones needs. We can quickly recommend a different living environment or we may suggest remaining at home while helping you put additional support services in place.
No matter if your loved one lives an hour away, or outside of the state, Eldercare Navigators can bring your loved one as close to you as you want them. Plus, help make all the arrangements to make this as smooth a transition as possible.
We also understand that you may be in the hospital and frequently they may only want to keep your loved one there for a few days, which does not leave you much time to make an informed decision on the next step in you or your loved one’s care. So, whether you want us to do all the time-consuming research for you and/or provide the tools to tour vetted facilities on your own, we can.
Lastly, moving into a retirement community is an emotional decision in normal times. These days, families have to make especially complex calculations while considering the ramifications of Covid-19. Before the pandemic, visiting potential communities was a smart way to help choose one, however in-person tours are rare right now. Let us help you navigate this process to make sure you are asking the right questions and making informed decisions.
Everybody’s situation is unique and together we can make a personalized plan of care to fit your needs.
We do not accept any gifts, referral fees, commissions or kickbacks from any facility, provider, or other entity or organization we refer you to, which unfortunately is unusual in our field.
