We are excited to share our newest spotlight in the today's transitions magazine. 

Finding out a family member is no longer able to safely remain in their home so often takes families by surprise. Countless of families just like you find themselves not sure where to turn for help.

Utilizing a reputable senior placement agency can make the search for the right Senior Living option a smooth process. An experienced advisor can guide families through the web of decisions that it takes to make a transition a success. Successful transitions can be challenging for families who try to navigate the waters of healthcare alone. There is a peace of mind that comes with knowing you have the professional support that aids in making decisions that can save time and money for your loved one.

Make sure the advisor you choose is knowledgeable about the resources and communities in Kentuckiana area. Be cautious of shopping on the internet for senior housing assistance. Numerous local families have voiced concerns about how their personal information they entered on a website may have been released to others or even worse sold to other companies. When entering you or your loved ones personal information on a website; read the fine print on the Privacy Policy. Often you can find language that allows the website to sell or disclose your personal and contact information with third parties.

Rick M, a local hospital Case Manager, tells of why he refers the families that he assist to Alisha Duvall, MSW/MFT, of Alee Solutions. “She acts with professionalism, compassion, and an empathy that cannot be imitated. Her path led her to start her own business Alee Solutions, which specializes in finding placement for seniors.  She has went above and beyond what she promises her clients. Alisha does this because she genuinely cares for people.  I assure you that it is not for the money, she doesn't know if she is going to be paid when taking on new clients.  She does everything she can for them and sees them through to the end. Alisha has more integrity and love for people that I can only hope to one day achieve."  Rick M. went on to say how important it is to have a local resource like Alee Solutions because with the number of senior living options available to us here in Kentuckiana it is   likely the facility that best would fit your loved ones needs might not pop up in your online search or when asking friends about where their loved ones have gone. That is why companies like this exist and why you should call a Social Worker first.  Most of these services are at no cost to the families.

Moving a parent in to your home can have many benefits. The same goes for caregiver that move-in with their loved-one but remember there is likely going to be a point where it may cause fatigue, stress, heartache and more expense than if they had a senior living apartment and care that came to them. These are especially true should it get to the point when your home has to go through a remodel for safety accommodations, says Alisha Duvall  MSW/MFT.

The Caregiver - Dealing with Parkinson's-related issues

Over the years as the disease progresses, caregivers stand witness to the destruction of their loved ones body and mind as the symptoms worsened. Once a loving gaze now replaced by often-blank expression resulting from rigid facial muscles. A good day now is a shuffling gait but often your lives "frozen" in place much like their inability to ambulate. The silence interrupted by the occasional welcomed hushed voice. Parkinson's-related issues are vast.  A struggle managing the constipation exacerbated by the sleep disturbances also complicate a caregivers ability to manage their loved ones condition on their own.

Call me and let us talk about how I have been able to assist other caregivers in the same situation.
