ElderCare Connections specializes in the field of aging & caregiving. ElderCare Connections can make recommendations about the services and care your mother needs. We will base our recommendations on a comprehensive, in-home assessment of her living situation, her functional, medical and emotional status, consultations with her doctors, as well as relevant financial and legal factors.
We offer a monthly monitoring service, which will give you peace of mind. In order to be able to effectively respond to and resolve a crisis we'll need to conduct an assessment of your parents' present situation. We make weekly telephone calls and a monthly visit to identify any concerns or potential problems before they become emergencies.
Generally Medicare does not pay for long-term custodial care services (non-skilled care) such as those offered by ElderCare Connections. Medicare pays for medically necessary, skilled nursing care or brief, intermittent home health care for specific medical conditions following an episode of acute illness.
Long Term Care Insurance , may provide a Geriatric Care Management benefit depending on the policy, background, and need of the individual case and coverage. You'll need to refer to your in-surance carrier to determine covered benefits.
We are very familiar with many of the public, non-profit and private programs in the community and are also skilled at locating and evaluating community resources with which we have not had recent experience. An assessment of your father's situation can help determine which programs might be most helpful and assist with the application and introduction process.
Selecting a facility, an independent living complex, an assisted living facility or nursing home, is a major life decision. ElderCare Connections can help guide with the process of finding a facility for your mom. Our professional staff can ascertain all appropriate options available based upon an assessment of your mother's current living situation, functional, medical and emotional state as well as relevant financial & legal factors. We then evaluate each option in order to determine which best meets your mother's individual needs as well as the family's preference.
Our professional staff can make regular telephone calls and home visits to assess whether your mother is eating nutritional meals and taking medications as prescribed. We can assist her with fillling her prescriptions and purchase her groceries. We will also conduct a home safety evalua-tion and assist you formulating an emergency response plan. Our professionals can accompany her to the doctor, report on significant concerns between visits & advocate for good care. If we detect a problem we will contact you.
Although ElderCare Connections does not provide “hands-on” 24 hours, 7-day per week on-call availability, we contract with various local homecare agencies that do, who will subsequently update our staff as soon as possible.
