Our aging life care managers work with the family system. Their goal is to bring together the care team, consisting of client, family members and various professionals, to ensure optimal care and a smoother journey.
How does a care manager give your family peace of mind during the caregiving process?
- Expert analysis (an unbiased opinion) so everyone understands better what is going on and can more easily get on the same page for decision-making
- Help analyzing the pros and cons of care decisions; bringing together the different opinions and alternatives; making sure the client has a voice
- Mediation and counseling to overcome conflicts and deal with challenges
- Guiding conversations and facilitating regular family conferences
- Improved communication and coordination
- Better results/fewer problems: oversight and monitoring
- Crisis prevention and intervention
For family members involved with elder care, working with a care manager brings a whole new peace of mind. You have an expert to call upon who knows your situation and knows “the system”.
