So you finally got to see your elderly loved one or client in person! Were you concerned or even alarmed by what you saw? Is their memory failing, do they seem frail or unsteady? Have they lost weight? Are they struggling to hear or see? Is their home in disarray? Mail or bills piling up? Message machine full? These are all signs of decline in your elderly loved one.
Care is There can help you and them, either by stepping in to help or teaching you how to do it!
If You Live In Our Service Area
If you live in our service area of Charlottesville, Virginia and the surrounding counties and the Shenandoah Valley (Harrisonburg, Staunton, etc.) we can meet personally with your client or loved one and:
- Identify their needs
- Create a plan to address those needs
- Implement the plan
- Continue to visit and monitor your loved one and address any new needs that arise
- Keep you informed
If your loved one doesn’t need (or thinks they don’t need) help right now, you might be interested in our Just in Case service, where we get to know your loved one so that if a need arises in the future, we’ll be there.
No Matter Where You Live
If you don’t live in our service area, we can teach you what to do if you notice decline in your elderly loved one! We have produced a number of online courses to teach you how to help your client or loved one with all the knowledge of a pro. You can see our library at this link, and here’s a preview of courses you may find particularly helpful:
- The Pro Guide to Becoming a Successful Long Distance Caregiver
- How to Create an Elder Care Plan that Works for Your Whole Family
- Finding Common Ground: How to Gain Agreement on Eldercare Decisions Even if You Have Failed in the Past
