It is common to notice changes when visiting an aging loved one you have not seen in a while. The changes you notice could be related to medications, a medical issue not being addressed, the beginning of progressive dementia, or a host of other factors. It can be difficult to know that precipitated the change you have noticed. Our team of geriatric care managers can begin an assessment process where we visit your loved one’s home, review medical records, review medications they are taking, and conduct some cognitive testing.
With the appropriate releases, we can talk with physicians, healthcare providers and home care providers and try to put together some understanding of where your loved one is mentally and physically and what is happening to her. In many cases, we are able to put together a plan that enables you to take some action to assist with what’s happening to your mom. If you are unable to take the recommended action, we are able to implement the plan on your loved one’s behalf through our care management services.
