Nursing Home Placement
No two nursing homes are the same and choosing the right nursing home is no easy task. Amenities and services differ. Payment options can differ and occupancy varies from day to day. Some nursing homes accept private pay dollars only while others have limited Medicaid-paid beds. These factors can limit your choices and waste valuable time. With Senior Solutions & Consulting, your choices are narrowed for you so you can expedite the decisions and processes in selecting your family member’s care. Learn more.
Assisted Living Consultation & Personal Care Home Placement
In the Greater Louisville and S. Indiana areas, there are well over thirty Assisted Living and Personal Care Homes to choose from. Many are affiliated, or share a campus setting with a skilled nursing home, but most stand alone. The range of fees at each community can vary considerably, as does the levels of care and services offered. For example, what if your loved one needs Medication Management? Some assisted living homes can only remind a resident to take their medications, which still requires a family member to purchase the resident’s medication and fill the pill dispenser. How can you manage that if you live out of town? Maybe you need more than assisted living. With Senior Solutions & Consulting, there is no ambiguity as to whether which community can meet individuals’ needs, and which ones cannot. Learn more about assisted living consultations.
Medicaid Application & Assistance
Applying for and qualifying for Medicaid benefits can be a complex process. A trip to the local Medicaid office is required, along with obtaining appropriate documentation for beginning the application process. Although it is possible for a family member to apply on behalf of the senior in the nursing home, assistance from a Geriatric Care Manager is recommended.
Private Consultation & Assessment
Often, a senior and their adult children simply want to know if they are making good decisions at a pivotal time in an aging person’s life. Searching for an objective, professional opinion about your current living situation is as easy as calling Pat Coomes. Moving to a senior living community is not an easy or inexpensive decision. Without a full review of one’s budgetary constraints short and long term, one’s assets could easily erode, leaving little money for future care. The same can be said for the cost of private duty and caregiving in the home. Assessing which alternative of care that is in the senior’s best interest, can be greatly eased with Pat’s professional advice.
