Does Mom need help but you are tapped out?

I brought Ann Butterfield to the show to explain how an Aging Life Care Manager can help you.

If you've heard the term "Geriatric Care Managers", it's the same position.

Ann explained that a Care Manager quarterback's your loved one's care.  She deals with all of the people who care for your loved one.  This quarterbacking can include:

  • A Life Care Manager manages the Caregivers.
  • Doctors--going to doctor appointments, and facilitating communication between the family members, the doctor, and the client.
  • Attorneys: Elder Law attorneys, Estate Planning attorneys, and others need to interact with the client and family, and the care manager helps facilitate this.
  • The Care Manager interacts with Trustees to meet the client's needs.
  • Other Experts: care managers bring them in when necessary.
  • Financial: including the accountant and Power of Attorney.  The Life Care Professional provides information on government benefits and assists the client in obtaining them where warranted.
  • Housing options: Evaluation and selection of appropriate housing such as assisted living options or memory care.
  • Family members:  Long Distance family members and others need help adjusting and coping with every day concerns and conflicts that arise.
