The number of families with aging loved ones is ever growing and the healthcare landscape “ever-changing”. Also, many families are scattered, with adult children living long distances away from their parents. Care Right can help those:
- Families facing a medical crisis
- Aging loved ones with limited or no local family support available
- Families new to the aging process who are unsure how to care for their loved one and/or unaware of available resources
- Caregivers who are “burned out” and in need of coaching, education and support
- Families with geographic constraints or limited time to devote to their aging loved one’s care needs
- Individuals needing an advocate to interact with care providers and provide timely communication to family members.
- Families who cannot reach consensus on their aging loved one’s care plan
- Unsure of their financial resources or the importance of updated legal documents
- Families who need education and direction in how to handle a loved one with dementia
