When Do You Know You Have Found The Right Agency To Assist Your Elderly Parents At Home?

The decision to have someone come into your home and care for yourself or a loved one is one of the most difficult decisions you will ever make.

The most important, and even critical, questions a client or family needing in-home care for their elderly parent should ask include:

  • Who can we trust to care for our elderly parent(s)?

Benefits of a Home Care Agency with a Geriatric Care Manager

Not all Home Care Agencies are created equal.

Who is an advocate for your loved-one?
Geriatric Care Managers (GCM) are uniquely trained and skilled as patient advocates and as a health care resource for the patient and their family.

The in-depth training GMC’s obtain is in nursing, social work, or gerontology. 

Non-Medical Home Care Can Prevent Rehospitalizations

How can non-medical home care agencies enable effective care transitions after hospitalizations?

Industry data shows that hospital re-admissions are frequent and expensive.

  • 19% of Medicare patients are readmitted within 30 days of discharge from hospital.*
  • 20% of patients experience post discharge adverse events.*
  • 75% of elderly rehospitalizations (which equates to 4.4 million people a year) may be preventable.*
  • Readmission often results from incomplete communication across a fragmented healthcare system.
