I became a client of Eldercare Specialists when I learned my mother had severe aortic stenosis and was in need of a value replacement within the next 6 months and she didn’t want surgery. My mother said she was ready to “go.” I wanted to honor her wishes, yet also make sure she was ready. I reached out to Eldercare Specialists for a consultation initially. They were professional, caring, knowledgeable and compassionate. They offered a wide array of services. They met with my mom to assess her readiness and discovered she was largely afraid of the surgery vs. desiring to pass. The geriatric care manager provided healthcare advocacy to secure a second opinion from a highly regarded specialist. The care managers helped get my mom’s wishes documented and made sure her durable power of attorney for healthcare and other legal documents matched her wishes. Eldercare Specialists was able identify the best cardiac surgery facility, advised us on skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities and ultimately on getting cardiac rehab. I’m delighted with the services and to say my mom has received her cardiac rehab “certificate of completion” and she is back to her normal active self. I highly recommend them and would use them again in a heartbeat. I have been asked “What is a care manager?”. My response is they are healthcare professionals that provide the support and expertise needed to help manage our parents care.
