Consultations can lead to comprehensive assessments and ongoing care management, but sometimes one or two brief educational meetings can get a family on track to manage a situation, or assist in transitioning someone to a safer environment where the family can then resume the caregiving role.
During a consultation we would provide information about:
- Community resources: dispelling the myths and presenting facts
- Resources such as: caregiver support programs, disease specific resources and information, dementia support
- Medicare and other insurance benefits, limitations, and ways to advocate for needed care and payment
- Housing options: more myths and facts to understand before making decisions that will change your family’s lives forever.
- Home health agencies/companion assistance – costs, specialty areas
- Recommendations specific to your situation regarding all of the above and more
