Family Consultation, Education, & Mediation
Meetings with family members are usually held at our offices for those who prefer learning about available services, eligibility criteria, and guidance before having “that” conversation with their aged parent, spouse, or friend/family member. At times, siblings or other family members may differ in their assessment of the need for intervention to facilitate family understanding and agreement on the type of care/placement or even have differing opinions about rules and regulations. Our care managers listen to each families perceptions and clarify NYS rules and legal options.
Evaluation & Assessment
Most of the time our Aging Life Care Professionals conduct evaluations in the client’s home where they are most comfortable. Our care managers evaluate clients in hospitals and nursing homes for discharge planning and to asses their needs based on diagnosis, functioning, and family relationships.
