WHAT WE DO
Initial telephone or e-mail Consultation
Sometimes it just takes a phone call to get the direction you need or to help you to structure your priorities. Don't hesitate to call or email us to discuss your situation. If your family member does not reside in a local area, we can also help to guide you to a care manager nearest you.
Initial Consultation Assessment
We will work with you to create an eldercare plan best suited to your personal goals, preferences, needs and financial situation. You will be provided with a written plan complete with the information you need to pursue the options available to you. We can also help you to coordinate and monitor those options.
Comprehensive Care Plan and Eldercare Assessment
The Care Plan is a tool which puts any and all services and programs in place to meet the older person's comprehensive needs. We help you to create a plan and then process the plan for you. The goal is to keep the older person at home as long as and as safely as possible; or to find the residential alternatives best suited to the persons needs and preferences.
Ongoing Care Management We fill the role of "surrogate" family for those who have no able or available family. We can accomodate visits weekly, monthly, quarterly, as-needed--whatever schedule best meets your needs. We monitor home help services, quality of life issues and are the liaison between client, family, doctor, homecare and other service professionals. While the goal of care management is to prevent crisis ---we also are your coach and advocate when transitions occur. Medicare and Medicaid do not reimburse for care management services. If you have a long term care policy, eldercare management/coordination is often covered by long term care insurance.
All services provided by Elderplanning are completely personal and confidential.
