Helping Families and Aging Loved Ones
Have you been having difficulty with the changes in your aging parent or loved one?

Many families recognize the need for help, but have no idea where to start.

We assess each family's situation, meet with your loved one, and develop a care plan that is right for you. We act as representatives for your family, and work with you to provide solutions that offer your loved one the care and quality of life they deserve, while offering your busy family peace of mind.

A loved one has dementia or memory loss – lots of changes occur when someone has dementia. Families are often at a loss about how to manage all of these changes. LifeLinks geriatric care managers can help evaluate the situation, educate the client and family and address concerns that come up throughout the disease progression.
There is conflict occurring within the family. By providing an independent assessment of the situation and being an outside, neutral professional, LifeLinks can dramatically reduce tension among family members. Our care managers can help make sure everyone’s voice is heard, but at the same time, remain focused on the older, vulnerable person to make sure their needs are met.
Mental illness and substance abuse is a factor (these problems may occur in the older person or even among family members). We help evaluate what’s going on and make recommendations about what to do to cope with the myriad of issues that can arise when mental illness or substance abuse is part of the problem.
Aging parent or family member refuses help, refuses to move, refuses to stop driving, or refuses to comply with medical advice. Often, there are reasons other than plain stubbornness at the heart of the problem. LifeLinks can help evaluate the reason for the resistance and develop a plan of action. While we don’t have a magic wand, we are often successful in developing an incremental strategy to help reduce harm to the client little by little. One of our strengths is our patience and ability to work through very difficult/complex problems.
Your aging loved one is at risk of harm. LifeLinks has the ability to thoroughly evaluate the situation and help determine ways to maximize independence, which is usually what the elder wants. By continuing to stay involved, the professional can adjust the plan of care over time to ensure that the client remains in the least restrictive setting as the situation changes.
