There comes a time when seniors themselves or their family members question if it is safe to continue to live independently in their own home. On one hand, the concern may be all the maintenance and logistical issues of remaining completely independent. Alternatively, it may simply be too expensive to pay privately for the level of care required to safely care for a senior in their own private home. In these situations, Advocare’s Senior Placement Services can assist your family in choosing a nursing home or assisted living.
Is NOW the time to make this decision? How do I start to have this conversation with my parents? How will we pay for this? Our senior placement services start with a comprehensive assessment by an experienced Professional Care Manager. Our professional assessment can assist you to determine if the timing is right to consider a move to assisted living or nursing care. If you determine to defer this decision, we can help you with interim options at home.
There are many “free” senior placement services available. Just get the facts and understand that their services are not really free – they are paid a fee by the facility after the move-in. he Advocare Transition Care Management model is different. We make senior placement recommendations without any profit motive or fees to be gained by referring to any particular facility. In fact, in many cases we are able to negotiate substantial discounts and stipends for a new resident up to several thousand dollars. Our recommendations are always based upon a detailed assessment by a professional Aging Life Care Manager.
After a move, Advocare can continue to monitor and manage the level and quality of care. Our Care Advocate on Call Program will assure quality of care and provide ongoing phone and email updates to family members.
