May is a special time of year, full of rebirth and growth. It’s also when we celebrate National Aging Life Care Month!
This is a great time to honor those educated and certified professionals that are the “boots on the ground” for people needing community-based services. They dig into the resources to help people recover and navigate a new period in their life.
What is Aging Life Care?
Aging Life Care Management is a client-centered approach to caring for people. Caring for an individual who needs assistance due to aging, dementia, disability, or serious illness can be challenging. During this time or a time of crisis, even the most loving, well-intentioned families struggle to navigate all aspects of one’s life that are affected.
What are the Benefits of Using a Life Care Manager?
A Life Care Professional is a specialist who guides and advocates for families in several fields such as mental health, nursing, physical therapy, psychology, social work, and much more. Whether your loved one requires senior care services or life care services, don’t go it alone. Aging Life Care Professionals are here to assist you in making the right decision regarding care for those you love all while relieving your stress of being a family caregiver.
Here are a few reasons why you may consider a Life Care Professional:
- Personalized Plan Development – focusing on the clients’ wants and needs for their loved ones
- Accessibility- Available 24 hours, 7 days a week
- Communication- Communication from everyone involved is guaranteed, doctors, family members, service providers, etc.
- Quality Control- Aging Life Care services follow ALCA’s Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics.
