When should we start planning for the future - even though everyone is in good health now?
Having conversations about the future when everyone is healthy and calm is the ideal time and will alleviate stress in the future. Don't wait until there is a crisis. Having a plan in place lets everyone become involved in the decision-making process and allows individuals to make their preferences known.
I'm trying to figure out my next step but feel completely overwhelmed with all the care options. Where do I even begin?
Decisions on whether to remain at home, consider an assisted living community or employ a caregiver can all feel like impossible tasks. We will help relieve your stress and research the best possible options for your loved one.
What organizations do you work with?
We have built trusting relationships with providers in home care, residential and day communities, medical practitioners, attorneys, financial planners and more.
What types of care plans are available? How do I know all of my or my loved one's needs will be met?
Senior Care Concepts will personalize care plans to meet your specific needs. A care plan could include coordination of medical appointments and follow up, our assistance with monthly bill paying or locating contractors for home modification. Because we provide ongoing oversight, we know if the care plan is working. We continually modify the plan as needs arise; both short and long term planning or in crisis mode if necessary.
I'm not sure how to bring up an assisted living facility to my aging parents, spouse or partner. How can I approach this sensitive subject?
Senior Care Concepts counsels families facing hard decisions by maintaining objectivity. We lead family discussions about emotional subjects and provide information to help you make the best decisions for your family. We listen to the family's decisions and identify the needs and navigate you through the process of decision making.
