Consultations are enormously helpful in the sort-term. But as care-giving situations grow more stressful and complex, you can support yourself and receive expert guidance by hiring me to provide ongoing care management services.
I help people assess where the help is needed: in the care (as in self-care), in the management of their loved one’s needs, or in both, and then I go to work coordinating those resources.
What you might need to know about my care management services:
- I can support and guide you in selecting caregivers.
- I can provide help coordinating medical appointments.
- I can provide you with doctor visit summaries.
- I am highly skilled at navigating medical bureaucracies to get your questions answered.
- I can monitor and assess the care your loved one is receiving.
- I can support family caregivers as well during the stress of caring for aging loved ones.
- I can advocate for elders as their needs change.
- I can listen deeply to you, the elder, while finding ways to help you renew and refresh a sense of purpose and honor and celebrate your life while aging with grace.
- As dynamics become challenging within family interactions, I can provide emotional support and guidance – attending to what I call the “softer side of care-giving.”
5 big benefits of care management you might not have heard of:
- There will be great comfort in knowing, with certainty, that your loved one is receiving the best possible care.
- You and your loved one will have ongoing support for a large variety of needs.
- You will have more time for your own needs.
- Your stress level will decrease.
- You will be supported in remembering that your anxiety and overwhelm do not mean you’re unable to care for your loved one, nor that you’re an inadequate caregiver. What it DOES mean is it’s not easy! We all need help and support during times like these.
