The Elderly Easter Egg-xpert has been found....SEARCH NO MORE !

 Many of our clients have found that having us arrange  in-home care  and a emergency alert pendent can be enough. These adult children have been able to ensure that their elderly parents are able to stay in their own home for years with a small amount of Concierge Care Management.  Some of our clients were grateful to have our expert advice available at the touch of a button especially when our current care plan was working superbly until the loss of one parent. The surviving parent is now truly alone. The surviving spouse may have been relying on the other for years to manage their medications, doctor appointments, paying bills, and many other activities of our daily lives. This is often a time when families have stepped up their use of our  Concierge Case Management  team.   Still others find that even with in-home care there are few opportunities to socialize with other seniors. Meals can become such a chore for them when there isn't around the clock in-home care that they just don't bother. Weight loss can be a social issue as much as a medical one. Adult children of elderly parents can find themselves searching for the way to convince their single elderly parent who maybe stubbornly clinging to the familiarity of home. This is often the times the argument their children face when bringing up a possible change. Clinging to the familiar should never be the deciding factor in if it is time to  Make a Move  and can often be a sad and lonely sight.
