Every family needs an Aging Life Care Manager so they don’t waste time going down the wrong path when facing the challenges of an aging family member. Professional advice and intervention saves families time, money and most of all worry and stress.
VillagePlan™ provides those who need support with a professional who is a member of the Aging Life Care Association (formerly the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers). These members have backgrounds in the health and human services fields from social workers to psychologists and nurses. They have extensive experience. Plus, most hold advanced degrees and are certified and/or licensed in their field.
The members follow a code of ethics and a standard of practice. This ensures you are provided with an unbiased professional who can go to bat for you when there is a medical crisis or the memory of the family member is impaired to the point of a safety risk.
Care Managers use their expertise to assist with crisis intervention, help you assess the needs of your family member, connect you to resources from housing to technology and provide you with the counsel and strategies you need to bring peace to your family and reduce the stress for everyone involved. They know the “best” resources and work only for you.
Care Managers can provide a quick consultation, do an extensive assessment or provide ongoing advocacy and oversight. The plan of care is worked out between you and the professional who lives and works where mom or dad lives.
You have an “expert” in your pocket from an organization that screens for education, experience, certification and the advanced technology of the VillagePlan™ that will connect you and everyone in your family member’s circle of care for current and real-time information.
