Where to Turn: Care Management Services
You’ve started to notice that your parent needs help at home, or they’re forgetting things more often. You feel it’s time to start doing research on senior services, but you and your siblings can’t seem to agree on what’s best for Dad.
Or maybe it’s a more emergent situation – your mother is being discharged from the hospital tomorrow, but she can’t live alone, and you live several states away. What do you do? Who do you call?
When time is of the essence and you’re under stress, hasty decisions might be made without knowing all the options that are available. You could try to research online, but what you really need is a real person to guide you through next steps.
That’s when you need Providence Solutions’ Care Management services.
It’s like having your own, personal nurse just a phone call away to answer your questions and give advice. Whether through a phone call or a face-to-face consultation, you have access to our years of geriatric care expertise and first-hand experience. We can connect you with the tools and resources you need to make the best decision for your loved one.
How is Providence Solutions’ Care Management different?
Unlike other “free” placement services (if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is), Providence Solutions works for you. Other agencies are paid a commission by the nursing home once they’ve referred a client to move in. While they may have good intentions and some good advice, they might not be taking a holistic look at your family’s situation.
The Aging Life Care Professionals at Providence Solutions will help you understand all the alternatives. They’ll start with an assessment of your loved one’s situation – medical needs, mental status, financial situation, family caregiver support, and more.
Then they’ll give you options. Maybe it’s connecting you with community and government resources that can help your parent age in place in their own home. Or maybe it’s finding an affordable shared housing arrangement. And sometimes, having a neutral outside opinion can help diffuse and mediate some of the conflict between family members.
Let’s talk about next steps.
