Your parents took care of you in the first decades of your life, but they may now need to rely on you. ConciergeCare is here—to ‘help you help them’ in the least intrusive way. As your parents’ advocates, we work to ensure they are receiving health guidance, quality care and safety. By doing so, we preserve your parents’ dignity and your lifelong parent-child relationship.
Take a look at our process for you and your aging parents:
- Professional assessment – A thorough assessment allows the advocate, or care manager, to understand your family’s needs, develop a customized plan, and deliver services that address your aging parent’s specific situation. Assessment interview questions cover a range of issues related to your loved one’s health and living situation, including everyday activities, health history, nutritional status, safety concerns, cognitive needs, depression, finances, and insurance.
- Planning – Our customized Plan of Care includes the results of our assessment, recommendations, and referrals for local community support options. Your advocate will explain details of the plan, the reasoning behind plan recommendations, and what you and your loved one can expect. They will then help to prioritize the list and guide you in its implementation.
- Plan facilitation – Once services and arrangements are in place for your loved one, regular monitoring is important. Our professionals can also provide frequent reevaluations to make any necessary adjustments to the care plan.
- Coaching and guidance for family caregivers – As advocates for your aging parents, we provide ongoing support and education to family caregivers to help ensure quality of life and optimum care for your loved one and reduce worry, uncertainty, and stress for everyone involved. We strive to “care for the caregivers” by providing the tools and knowledge you and other caregivers need to thrive in this important role.
