Looking for Care? Let's Get Started!
We Provide Access to Client Advocacy Services
Seniors with chronic physical or developmental conditions often require coordination of multiple physicians, expert knowledge of payor source approvals and assistance in obtaining home care services.
If your loved one is exhibiting noticeable physical decline, increasing confusion, escalating healthcare costs and an inability to handle daily tasks, it may be time to evaluate the types of support services available.
Client advocacy or "life care management" is the professional assessment, planning, coordination, supervision and management of healthcare and quality-of-life services.
It is a preventive, proactive approach to healthcare that reduces the risk of hospitalizations, nursing home admissions, and healthcare costs. Assets can be preserved through planning, cost control and supervision of daily needs.
A client advocate will listen to the concerns of you and your loved one, visit the home and recommend options for improved quality of life, healthcare services, and cost containment.
