As today’s seniors age, adult children who are geographically distant from their parents face new challenges regarding their desire to help and their ability to manage all of the responsibilities. Senior care managers are professionals that offer their expertise to help long-distance caregivers keep loved ones safe and independent in their own homes.
A senior care manager offers a unique resource to help long-distance caregivers and busy adult children navigate the many aspects of caring for an aging adult. Such professionals are skilled in assessing the multi-dimensional needs of today’s senior adults. A senior care manager works with you and your loved one(s) to optimize good health, improve overall quality of life and allow your loved one to remain at the most independent level of care possible.
Some ways you may benefit from the services of a senior care manager include:
- Personal safety
- Physical and social health
- Nutritional health
- Financial needs
- Identification of problem areas
- Suggest actions and/or interventions
- Resource recommendations
- Arrangement of supportive services
- Education and advocacy
- Counseling and support
- Liaison to geographically distant families
