We assess your needs and guide you through the logistics of the move. Our specialists work with you to discuss options, develop a plan, identify the services you will need and set up timeframes to complete the move. The plan includes how to approach the move, downsize, design, set up and transition to your new home. We work with you, the facility, physician and long-term care insurance to ensure the move is safe and goes as planned.
Our specialists will coordinate the services required and logistics of the move to make sure everyone does the right job at the right moment. We make sure your new home is designed the way you want. If you move to a facility we will partner with their team to develop a plan that ensures a smooth and welcoming transition during and after the move.
Determining what to do with all your possessions and your current home can be overwhelming. We can assist you with developing a plan to downsize and coordinate with moving companies and other professionals to prepare for the move, move items to different places and sell your current home. Our specialists work with you to develop the floor plan and design your new home so you can plan what to take, what to buy and where to place your belongings before move day.
Moving from home to a new environment can be very difficult and full of emotion if memory loss is involved. We provide support and counseling on how to approach and manage a move that is difficult due to dementia, resistance to moving or health issues. We work with the family, physician and facility to develop a move plan that is safe and protects the dignity of the older adult being moved.
“Lynn Goehner and her caring team of geriatric case managers made it so I can be as independent as possible and age at home. They set up home care and helped me hire private caregivers. I have always been very independent and did not feel I needed a geriatric care manager or Eldercare Specialists’ help, but my family persisted. Lynn started, my diabetes and high blood pressure were causing me a lot of problems and instead of taking away my independence my health improved and they advocated for my independence. Her team of geriatric care managers advocated with the doctors and provided blood pressure and diabetes care management. 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 Specialists team.”
