What is a Senior Care Advisor?
Have you wondered what exactly a Senior Care Advisor is and how they can help you? Find out the many different ways they can help seniors and their caregivers.
A Senior Care Advisor is a professional consultant with extensive knowledge on elder care. They have dedicated themselves to assisting people transition into the next stage of life through elder care consulting, placement into assisted living, and advocacy.
For many, it can be difficult to know when, or if, assisted living is appropriate. Resisting change is human nature and caretakers of elderly loved ones may even feel guilty when thinking of how to best care for older parents. A Senior Advisor can help you understand the benefits of assisted living and why it is often the better choice for an aging parent.
They will help you talk with your parent(s) and other family members until everyone feels comfortable with the decision. Your Advisor will do an in-depth, non-medical assessment to gain a clear understanding of your loved one's needs, then narrow down the communities that might be a good fit, saving you time, money and the hassle of weeding through them on your own.
There is a lot to navigate through when it comes to caring for an elder loved one. Paperwork, insurance, physical property, coping with change, juggling a career and family, financial and emotional strain, and so many other things. It can all pile up until you feel completely overwhelmed. A Senior Care Advisor will help guide you through all of this, lessening your burden and lightening your load. Having someone helping you who knows exactly what you are going through, can make such a difference.
