Are you or someone you know stressing over the thought of how to find senior care in a safe and affordable community for loved ones? Are you confused about all of the different types of communities and unsure which one may be best for your loved one? With all of the options available, the research and time that is put into finding the right community for a loved one can push family members to a breaking point. Finding the best senior care available is one of the many care advocacy benefits.
One of the most common reasons families seek the help of a Care Advocate is to place a loved one into a facility or community. Care Advocates are able to assist families in choosing which option is best based off of their loved ones needs, budget and desired location. The most popular recommendations include:
- Nursing Home Placement
- Home Care Options
- Assisted Living Placement
- Continuing Care Retirement Communities
Care Advocates can go beyond just placement recommendations. Alivity Care Advocates recommends monthly visits from Care Advocates to monitor client’s health and care needs and address changes as needed. Alivity recently had a client residing in a senior living community. During a monthly visit, our Care Advocate noticed the client had a black eye. Our Care Advocate was able to make recommendations and guided the family through the process of reporting the facility and moving her to another location.
Whether you are looking for assistance to find senior care you can trust, Care Advocates can help. Contact Alivity Care Advocates online for more care advocacy benefits or call (586)493-7677 today to get started.
