In some cases the older adult may need on-going monitoring in order to maintain the highest level of independence in their home. The older adult may not have family members in town or family members that are bound by other obligations that are unable to assist with necessary daily programs. In this case, our Geriatric care managers can step in and provide regular support and supervision to the older adult. Routine reports can then be given, either in written format through a letter and/or e-mail or through verbal communication via phone, to concerned family members or other professionals regarding the on-going status of the older adult.
Long Term Placement in Continuing Care Retirement Communities, Assisted Living Facilities or Nursing Homes
If, for some reason, it is no longer safe and appropriate for the older adult to remain at their home, our Geriatric care managers can navigate the maze of long term placement steps and state required paperwork. Our Geriatric care managers can also assist older adults and/or their family members in coping with the emotions of transition from home to facility.
