Elder Care Plan

Elder Care Plan - The CARES MODEL

The CARES MODEL

The CARES MODEL was designed to help our clients understand the aging process. We can provide a thorough in-house assessment identifying key components for safety and wellness in the living environment. Families like having the choice of using our Health Navigation or Nursing assessment services. We identify nursing concerns and develop a comprehensive guided care plan that is specific to your needs. Utilizing Care Solutions for Elders’ CAREs Model, our plan will focus on allowing the elder to remain in the least restrictive environment while balancing their ADL (Activity of Daily Living) functions with medical requirements.

Our recommendations may include suggestions for home modification, purchase of home safety equipment, medical referrals, information regarding the cost of long-term care options, caregivers, local support, etc. While exploring the various care options we will work to ensure that the care plan runs parallel to your financial plan and will continually evaluate and adjust as necessary as the needs of your elder change over time. We work to create a plan that is clear, consisting of best safe practices that ensure the welfare and happiness of your elder and provide you peace of mind. We believe you should have choices.
Our goal is to provide the safest and cost effective care planning to help elders remain in their homes as long as possible.

As Case Managers we have extensive experience in all stages of elder care and can effectively interface with doctors, attorneys, trust officers and financial planners. We work to provide continuity of care and eliminate duplication of services by closely partnering with medical staff, discharge planners and other care services.

Our goal is to provide the safest and cost effective care planning to help elders remain in their homes as long as possible. We provide straight-forward information to help families make the best decisions for their loved ones as they age in place.
