Transitional and Geriatric Care Consulting & Management
Getting The Care You Need For Life's Transitions
Seventy percent of Americans 65 years and older will need some form of long-term care during their lives. One in eight of Americans, 65 years and older will experience dementia-related conditions, while a full 50% of Americans will once they reach 85 years and older. Our society is experiencing a "silver tsunami", for which it is not prepared.
The elderly (and those with special needs) are vulnerable and need help. Despite the increasing need for care, resources are scarce. At Kendrick & Co. (affiliated with the Wesolick Law Firm), we assist with solutions to the challenges you face in finding long-term care for a loved one.
We advocate for you in the increasingly complex decisions by coordinating care through our network of professional caregivers: physicians, hospitals, senior care / assisted living / skilled nursing facilities and hospice in the local health care community.
The services we offer to families include:
- Assessing any needs: mental, physical and financial
- Recommendations on care needs with a written report
- Consultations and research as needed, including Long Term Care (LTC) admissions and any on-going geriatric care consultation and coordination services
- Updates to the initial care plan
- Telephone calls, visits, benefits applications, other contact with family and providers
- Serve as your advocate in the overwhelming circumstances
Our firm helps find solutions to improve the quality of life when your loved one is in need of long-term care, such as:
- Being in the least restrictive setting
- Home, independent living, assisted living, adult family homes, skilled nursing facilities
- Safety from falls, avoiding accidents
- Being physically comfortable
- Having appropriate adaptive equipment, having the level of intervention that one voluntarily accepts, having self-determination decisions respected
- Not being a burden to others
- Not becoming a victim of fraud, scams, and abuse
Proper care planning minimizes the isolation, hardships and misunderstandings, lack of support and overwhelming demands resulting from incapacity experienced by a loved one. We design a tailored care plan to improve quality of life, reduce your stress and anxiety about long-term care needs, and increase your control of care and assistance.
