A care manager is a professional who walks alongside seniors and their families during the aging process. Every individual’s situation and goals are unique. These are a few of the situations where I can help you.
Aging in Place
Does your loved one hope to age in place? I can help ensure the situation is sustainable and safe, and recommend interventions specific to their individual needs.
Whether your loved one is downsizing to an accessible home, returning home after surgery with increased care needs, or looking for a care facility, I can help with the transition. Rely on me as you evaluate the appropriate level of housing, identify options, and coordinate logistics.
I can help facilitate communication between doctors, therapists, caregivers, and family. I don’t hesitate to ask questions, and ensure medical professionals communicate with you clearly. Do you worry that your parents aren’t following doctors’ orders? I can monitor and offer solutions as needed.
Do you have a loved one in Maryland, but distance keeps you from checking in as often as you would like? I can step into your shoes to ensure that their needs are being met, and alert you to concerns that arise.
Caregiver Counseling and Advocacy
Caring for an aging family member can be difficult. As both a family caregiver and a professional care manager, I can come alongside you to help. Whether you need advice as you weigh important decisions, strategies to avoid burnout, or a third party to facilitate family meetings, I am here to support you.
Are you looking ahead to your own aging years? I can assess your home and situation to help you make an achievable aging plan. This is a great way to take the decision-making burden off of your loved ones’ shoulders, and to ensure that your own aging goals are met.
