Our goal is to support you and your aging loved one as you navigate the challenges of eldercare. In particular, we can help with the following needs:
Our areas of expertise
We bring over 18 years of experience in the field of aging life care, including the following eight categories:
- Health and disability. Through assessments and experience, we can help you understand what your loved one does well and in what areas he or she could use additional help.
- Finances. A review of the current monetary situation will result in a plan to make resources stretch as efficiently as possible while maintaining the desired level of comfort, dignity, and safety.
- Housing. Based on the assessments, recommendations can be made for optimal living situations now, with a view to likely changes in the foreseeable future.
- Family. Sibling disagreements and family history often make the aging journey difficult. Our training provides skilled facilitation of family meetings and creation of a plan that takes everyone’s needs into account.
- Local resources. There are programs available to help, but it’s difficult to know which one is the most appropriate for your situation. Save time and money by letting us objectively evaluate the situation and connect you to the resources best suited to your needs.
- Advocacy. Our comprehensive knowledge of the disjointed health care system allows us to monitor quality and lobby for the care and treatment your family wants.
- Legal. Let us help you identify issues and get key paperwork in order.
- Crisis intervention. The unexpected is simply a fact of life in aging. We are experienced with elder emergencies and are ready to jump in at a moment’s notice.

People typically hire us in the following formats:
- Initial assessment and care plan. We meet with your relative in their home to get to know them as a whole person: Body, mind, heart, and spirit. We will then have a better idea of their strengths and areas where they could use more support. We can also give you a sense of things that might be on the near horizon. You receive a care plan (spoken or written) that suggests the best way to go about supporting your loved one to have the best quality of life: Enhancing their strengths and the things they love to do; providing services or equipment or supplies that can shore up those areas where they need some extra help.
- Hourly consultations. Perhaps you just want to talk about your dad’s dementia and some of the challenges you are facing. Maybe you are an older adult yourself and want to explore what the various options are if you stay in your home versus move to a more social setting. We are happy to do short-term consultations that are very focused discussions on a single subject. These can be in person, over the phone, or via Skype or Zoom.
- Ongoing support. If the person you care for needs more hands-on assistance, from medication management to daily home care, or a knowledgeable medical advocate to go with them to the doctor’s, we will gladly work with them to provide, or oversee, any services they need to retain their optimal health and quality of life.
