As A Senior Care Consultant, What Do You Do?

I work with seniors, family caregivers and adult children with aging parents, who are struggling with the challenges of aging. As their advocate, I assist clients to navigate the senior care industry and the logistics of aging.

What Services Do You Provide?

I offer a broad range of assistance but often it is:

  • Assisting an adult child with an aging parent who can no longer live independently.

  • Working with a senior who wants to remain in their home but doesn’t know the necessary available resources.

  • Guiding a senior who wants to move to Independent Living or requires Assisted Living.

  • Helping a family member manage their caregiver role, especially when caring for someone with a progressive disease like Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s Disease.

What Is Your Approach With Clients?

I offer individual customized action plans to assist in both short-term and long-range care needs. Advance planning for as much of the process as possible helps avoid acting out of crisis. I also emphasize Education, understanding the range of available care options, and Communication, making one’s wishes known about both long-term care and end-of-life care.

How Does One Choose A Senior Care Consultant?

Ask questions! Hiring the right Senior Care Consultant is a personal decision. Understand their professional and personal experience with seniors, as well as their approach, so you feel comfortable trusting your needs and care, or those of a loved one, with that person.

What Difficulties Do People Encounter About Aging?

The systems in our society to assist seniors are difficult to navigate. Many people don’t know what resources and care options are available or how to access them. Clients often say, “I don’t know what to do or how to begin”. That’s when my experience as both a family caregiver and as an aging specialist is of value to clients.
