Aging Life Care Management

Definition: The process of planning and coordinating care for those with physical and/or mental impairments in order to meet their long-term care needs, improve their quality of life, and maintain their independence for as long as possible.

When should we hire an Aging Life Care Manager?

  • When there’s no local support system in place, or family is not available or lives too far away to assist regularly
  • Family members are unable to determine needs, agree on options, or arrange for or oversee care
  • Medication Management is necessary for the safety and wellbeing of the senior
  • If the burden of providing care is threatening the health of the spouse or primary caregiver
  • Your loved one displays inappropriate behavior, uses poor judgment or may be easily victimized
