Eldercare Solutions Focused on Health, Dignity & Independence

Eldercare Specialists was built on the fundamental belief that our geriatric care management solutions need to be compassionate, caring, thoughtful, and focused on our client’s needs and personal preferences.

Our geriatric care managers spend time developing a relationship with our client’s and their families so we understand their needs, keep them healthy and out of the hospital.

We Assess Your Needs and Help You Develop a Plan

By meeting with you or your loved one, reviewing  medical records,  talking to physicians, and those involved to ensure the family has an agreed upon plan that addresses health, emotional, financial, social and legal needs.

Assisting the family with implementing the plan to ensure the care and associated costs are managed and monitored.

Coaching  and counseling the family as they adjust to the changes and losses they are facing.

We Navigate the Healthcare Maze for You

Testimonials

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.
