Planning for the Long-Term Care of Your Aging Loved One

At Saint Elizabeth Community, our Geriatric Care Managers will treat each person as an individual with their own unique needs. They evaluate each family’s situation so that they understand and create the best long-term plan.

Finding the right care for your aging loved one can be complicated. And their needs may change over time. Let a Geriatric Care Manager guide you through the process. It all begins with listening.

How Does Geriatric Care Management Work?

We start with an initial needs assessment. Together, we will identify goals and make recommendations for service options, home safety, community resources and long-term planning. We collaborate with your family’s healthcare professionals
from accompanying them to appointments to ensuring that your loved one stays on track with their doctor’s recommendations. As their needs change, we will help them adapt.

Managing medications can get complicated. Our registered nurse will work with the doctor and pharmacy to assist with adherence. In the event of a crisis, we’re here to help. Since we already know your loved one, we’re better equipped to assist should an emergency arise. We’ll help with respite coverage, referrals or even visiting the hospital if needed. Coordinating home care services is our specialty. Whether your loved one needs skilled nursing, physical or occupational therapy or nursing assistant coverage, we’ll find the right mix.

Geriatric Care Management Covers More than Health

Daily household management is always a challenge and our Concierge team provides a range of services including companionship, transportation, running errands, cleaning, preparing and serving meals. We can arrange any services necessary to keep our clients in a safe and comfortable environment. We’ll assist with long-term care insurance, reviewing polices related to home care services to ensure you know what’s covered.

It’s All About Communication

Our goal is to create an ongoing dialogue between our clients, their families and all of the health care providers involved in their long-term care management. Your Geriatric Care Manager serves as the point person for your loved one’s medical, health and household needs.
