“I have always been very independent and did not feel I needed a geriatric care manager or Eldercare’s help, but my family persisted. Instead of taking away my independence Lynn Goehner and her team made it so I can be as independent as possible and remain in my home. When she started, my diabetes and hypertension were causing me a lot of problems. By collaborating with my doctors, she was able to help get me on the right medications and get healthy again. Eldercare Specialists has helped me stay healthy, social and active. This year I turned 100, and I couldn’t have done it without Lynn and the Eldercare team.”
Your team of geriatric care managers and healthcare advocates helped me respect my mother in law’s wishes to stay home. I don’t know how we would have done it without you. You were consistently there with helpful suggestions, for doctor visits, and, yes, even for emergencies. You were caring and gentle yet forceful when things needed to be done. We are all grateful for how you worked with her and for your wonderful, and much needed, family support.
