Need proper care management for your aging parent?
Thursday, 10 November, 2016
Caregiving is not easy for anyone.
We're here to help. While we don't deliver medical care, we can oversee your loved one's care through our care management services. We will keep you and your family members - whether living nearby or far away - informed, involved and confident that your loved one is enjoying a healthy, safe and independent lifestyle.
If you don't live near your aging parent, you may wonder if what you're doing is enough to oversee your loved one's care. Even if you live nearby, you may discover the problems you or your loved one are facing are becoming larger and more complex than you can comfortably manage. Or maybe your life's other responsibilities have grown to the point you are unable to provide the level of supervision and attention to your loved one’s care that you wish.
Our care managers or care providers act as your senior parent's "guide," helping to ensure they follow doctor's orders, which isn't as easy as it sounds, especially if a senior has memory difficulties or problems reading fine print. Our care managers can assist your aging parent with:
- Transportation and scheduling of doctors' appointments
- Attending doctors' appointments and facilitating communication between doctor, senior and family members, if appropriate.
- Monitoring client's adherence to instructions, including reminders to take medications and exercise as directed by a physician
- Special dietary needs for conditions like diabetes, hypertension or heart disease can be managed through strict shopping guidelines and proper food preparation by our skilled CARE team.
