What are the most valuable services you provide for your clients?
Many clients are informed consumers, but the variety of options and pricing for homecare and communities can be bewildering. Because we don’t have financial relationships with any facilities or resources, our objective recommendations are based on clients’ preferences and budgets. Whether they’re considering a CCRC, assisted living, skilled nursing care or staying at home, we help navigate the process of making the best choice and can remain involved afterward, as needed. Because we’ve done this for more than 30 years, we know what is out there, and keep abreast of changes.
Many of our calls are from adult children looking for guidance on how to evaluate their parents’ need for care. More and more, though, we are meeting with clients, often Baby Boomers, who are proactively planning for their own future. While we can provide support to families in crisis, there are always more options when planning ahead to meet the challenges of aging.
