A Caring Strategies Care Manager conducts an initial assessment

Using a detailed history and virtual or home meetings, we conduct an assessment of your loved one’s situation. We address your specific questions and concerns, and identify the strengths of the current situation along with carefully selected resources for your unique circumstances. We can also give you a general sense of how things are likely to evolve over the next 6 months or longer. This way you can make decisions within the context of a longer-term perspective.

A Caring Strategies Care Manager can help you navigate the healthcare system

If you sometimes feel overwhelmed by the medical system, you are not alone! It can be daunting for anyone. We can help you communicate with doctors and even accompany you to medical appointments if you wish. We make sure your questions are answered and help you with any prescriptions or follow-up discussed. Because we understand the system, we advocate on your behalf. We can also keep your family members informed when desired.

A Caring Strategies Care Manager arranges for in-home services

It may be that living at home alone without some kind of help is no longer a safe or workable option. You may need a little help in managing your medications or preparing meals. Or, having someone come by on a regular basis may be all that is needed. We can help you identify the kinds of services that answer your needs and where to get them so you can remain independent.

A Caring Strategies Care Manager checks in periodically

As an adult child living away from your parents, it is stressful to know how quickly things can change in the aging process. Whether your parent is in their home or in a retirement community, we can check in on them routinely and act as your “boots on the ground” when you are far away. By checking in periodically, we notice changes and alert you if we feel that more support or attention is needed. From mobility issues to memory problems to medication management, we can troubleshoot situations that are making life more difficult than it needs to be. You can have peace of mind knowing that changes will be recognized and addressed promptly.

A Caring Strategies Care Manager helps you manage and coordinate transitions

Transitions can range from a temporary hospitalization-rehab-home situation to moving from your home of 50 years to a retirement community. Whether your transition was planned or caused by an unexpected life event, we can walk alongside you to provide options, do the research and facilitate your change. We coordinate all sorts of moves such as from one level of care to another in the same building to even chartering a medical transport plane on occasion! Our expertise saves you time and often money.

A Caring Strategies Care Manager helps you select alternative living arrangements

If more assistance is needed, and it cannot be provided safely or affordably at home, we can guide you to a situation that will meet your preferences. Families also call us when a loved one can no longer remain in their current level of care due to health or dementia circumstances. Our understanding of the broad range of services available in the aging community results in a good fit and positive transition. Our process starts with an assessment of health, finances, and location preferences, keeping in mind any long-range health needs for the future. We understand the unique personality of each place and can guide you to the best fit for your needs and desires.

If you think extra help and an objective viewpoint is a good idea, give us a call at 256-489-7573. We’d be happy to talk about your situation and ways to meet your unique requirements.
