Care Management For Your Loved One
Do you see yourself in any of these situations?
- Mom gets confused and isn’t taking her medications correctly. She fell three times last week and was taken to the emergency room. Is she still able to live alone?
- Yesterday, Dad was diagnosed with cancer. The doctor wants him to start chemotherapy soon. What are Dad’s options for treatment and what kind of care will he need?
- I work full-time and still have children at home. I’ve taken time off work to help my parents but I can’t be with them every day. I love them but I’m exhausted and frustrated. Is there someone who can help me care for them, pour their medications and be with them at doctor appointments?
- Mom’s doctor just called. She recommended I contact hospice. Mom cries when I call her and I know she needs help but I live 1400 miles away. What do I do now?
