You're Not Alone

As life advances, those in their older years encounter subtle and not so subtle challenges. Perhaps it's learning to deal with retirement, figuring out how to live on a fixed income, balancing a checkbook, facing a life-threatening health crisis or even coping with the death of a spouse.

If you're an adult child of an aging parent, you're concerned. Is she eating properly? Is he taking his medications? Can she maintain a household? Can he manage on his own?

A Geriatric Assessment can assist in identifying a loved one's needs and ways of obtaining the appropriate services in the most cost-effective, least restrictive manner.

How We Can Help

Perhaps the solution is as simple as arranging for a homemaker to do a few weekly chores. Or a visit to the doctor to identify if apparent mental confusion is an interaction between medications. Maybe you need someone to help her pay her bills. Or maybe you need help figuring out how to get Medicaid to pay for his prescriptions.

At Aging Concerns, Inc. we help preserve the optimum level of independence while insuring the proper level of care and assistance is provided for your loved one.

Resident Advocate Program

If a loved one is residing in a care facility our resident Advocacy Program can provide monitoring to ensure the elders needs are being met. Please call for a FREE brochure, (phone number).
