A Life Care Manager can be the point of contact for families at a distance. Not only will he/she take care of all aspects of the senior’s care—socialization, getting to appointments, and being there for emergencies—the Life Care Manager will keep the family up to date every step of the way.
Because a Life Care Manager has years of experience and training, they know dementia care and how to handle challenging behaviors. A Life Care Manager provides expert support not only to the senior, but to all involved. This gets everyone on the same page, leading to a better care experience.
Life Care Managers communicate closely with all involved physicians to ensure that everyone has the same medication information. Most offices allow a Life Care Manager to set up the medication box for the senior. This, along with regular reminders by our Caregivers, can ensure medications are taken as intended.
Socialization is one of the most important aspects of home care. The Life Care Manager works to understand the needs and desires of the entire family to learn about the senior’s passions, both past and present. This includes planning trips, walks, social events, and much more.
Finding the right path is critical during periods of transition for a senior. Family members with strong and opposing views can benefit from the professional objectivity derived from engaging an experienced individual. Life Care Managers can help families create a plan and reach consensus to move forward to best serve the senior’s needs.
Post hospitalization, the transition home is critical and requires attention to multiple tasks in a short period of time. A Life Care Manager will ensure that the details get handled in a professional, timely manner. From home care to medical equipment to medication compliance—we are here to help ensure the best transition home.
Most adult children have many other people vying for their attention: children, spouses, work, friends, and/or parents. Life Care Managers offer family caregivers additional support through home visits, regular communication, escorting seniors to medical appointments, caregiver oversight, and much more. They will make the caregiving experience better for all involved parties.
Upon learning about a new diagnosis, you may feel the world will never be the same again. A Life Care Manager partners with families to provide information and resources in a compassionate manner. They can take on as much, or as little, as you would like. They will help coordinate care to achieve a sense of stability.
Families want to do the right things for their loved one. Life Care Manager’s comprehensive home care assessment gets at the needs and preferences of all involved and gives families the tools to understand the situation and appropriate care options. It supports them in making the best decisions.
Life Care Managers understand seniors’ underlying concerns. Each situation is unique, and Life Care Managers are experienced and well equipped in their approach to addressing home care needs. Sometimes it takes an outside professional to help families realize their options and obtain the care needed in a positive, non-threatening manner.
