Care Coordination

Elder care coordination services are especially valuable when your loved one is still living at home, which is often the case in a Pre-Crisis Life Care Plan. Getting the right care for your loved one early in his or her end-of-life journey often delays the need for long-term care in an institutional setting. Equally as important is teaching you how to assure good care once your loved one reaches institutional care.

Care Comes First

Quality of care leads to quality of life. That’s why every Life Care Plan Implementation Team includes an Elder Care Coordinator who oversees the coordination of your loved one’s health and long-term care, serves as your advocate and empowers you with the knowledge you need to make the right decisions for your loved one in every circumstance.

Whether your loved one is living at home, at an assisted living facility or in a nursing home, you can relax in the knowledge that his or her care is being coordinated by experts who have extensive knowledge about the costs, quality, and availability of resources in the community.

What Does an Elder Care Coordinator Do?

Your Elder Care Coordinator serves as your support line, your advocate, your confidante and your friend. Your Elder Care Coordinator will:

  • Conduct care assessments to uncover potential problems and find solutions
  • Help you locate and hire in-home help or other services
  • Coordinate with medical and health care providers
  • Review medical issues and offer referrals to other geriatric specialists to provide appropriate care in a way that conserves financial resources
  • Help you plan for the possibility of incapacity or disability
  • Provide support, guidance, and advocacy during a crisis
  • Arrange for alternate housing, if needed
  • Help to coordinate transfer and transportation of an older person to or from a retirement complex, assisted care living facility, or nursing home
  • Help explore Veteran’s Benefits
  • Provide education, counseling and support
  • Prepare and guide you and your family through the Medicaid application process
  • Work in collaboration with other members of the support team serving your loved one, including long-term care administrators, accountants, physicians and financial planners to insure that the right professional is helping you at the right time.
