We help seniors and their families meet the challenges of aging by:
Helping a loved one is a humbling experience. As you help your loved one, you think about their
mortality. It can be a deeply emotional time. Helping a loved one is time consuming, as well. You have to manage your own schedule to include time to sort through your loved one’s mail, pay bills, go shopping for groceries, prescriptions and toiletries, and accompany them to medical appointments.
You may need to coordinate care with siblings and friends. Sometimes conflict can occur over the best way to manage your loved one’s care. Fulfilling all of these roles is a loving, rewarding experience, but can wear you down physically and emotionally.
Care Managers Northwest offers professional assistance to help you cope with these challenges. Some services include:
Most of us don’t want to see any signs of aging in ourselves, let alone talk about concerns and fears about growing older. Most of us don’t even want to think about it. But one day, we will need to face the challenges of aging. In addition to the aches and pains that we experience as we grow older, we may start to notice changes in our hearing, vision and memory.
If it is not us, then it might be an elderly parent or relative who needs help. It could
be your dad who broke his hip and can’t be home alone, or your grandma, the one you promised never to put in a nursing home. She can’t live alone and she can’t live with you. You have work, a family and house. You’re exhausted and taking care of grandma would be near impossible. At one of these times, an aging life consultant can help you. It does not have to be a crisis. It may be, in spite of the desire to be independent, you or your loved one should think about getting help.
Some signs to consider include:
A one-time consultation or ongoing care management is available. Contact us by telephone or email when you feel that you or your loved one needs assistance. We will review your situation and schedule a time to meet you and your loved one at home.
