The landscape of the assisted living industry continues to evolve quickly. Despite its high price-tag, for many seniors, it’s a popular alternative to remaining in the home. But you must do your due-diligence when choosing an assisted living community for your loved one. Premier geriatric care management company Advocare can help you with that and all other elder services in South Florida.
You Need an Advocate to Help Manage Elder Services in South Florida
Without having an experienced advocate by your side, choosing the most appropriate living facility can be overwhelming. An excellent place to start planning is with your budget. Having a budget in place is crucial. According to an April 2018 Consumer Reports article, a leading long-term care insurer says that in 2017, the median fee for a private one-bedroom was $45,000 a year.
Advocare has helped many of clients over the years make the transition to a senior living community. Here’s what’s different about us. Unlike “free” placement services, we continue to track their progress and monitor their care. And this gives us, as professionals, a unique professional perspective on these facilities and the ability to independently judge how one facility looks, feels and performs relative to others. And once your loved one moves there, we’ll make sure that things continue to go according to plan, and serve as their advocate on medical, psychosocial, and care issues if you are not available to do so.
What’s different about our Care Management services is that we see how these facilities and communities actually perform with our clients over the course of time, after a move. Our allegiance is to our clients. Since we do not accept any payments or fees from the facilities themselves, we do not have any conflicts of interest.
You can opt to have our services on-call 24/7 for crisis management, in case your loved one is suddenly hospitalized or sent to the emergency room. He/she will have a familiar face that is knowledgeable about the medical history and recent status.
Our patient care coordinators are Registered Nurses with years of experience handling issues and challenges with our senior clients. Compassion lives here. When you need elder services in South Florida, call the aging life care professionals – Advocare at (561) 266-3489.
