We began Life Options for Seniors to provide a more personal and in-depth connection with families faced with making life-changing decisions. Having worked in hospitals, Skilled Nursing Facilities, Home Health, and In-home, we have the medical background, skills, and experience required to provide you with appropriate care options.
To guide and educate you during a stressful time and help you make an informed decision. We do the footwork for you. We visit each home to ensure they meet criteria for safety, collect specific information as to what type of care each home can accommodate, type of resident they prefer, if they allow pets. We also check with licensing to ensure that the facility does not have any prior violations.
How we work
Once a Referral has been made to Life Options for Seniors
We set up a face-to-face assessment usually in the comfort of your home or at a hospital setting, during which we assess your functional abilities, mental status, review medical diagnosis, review current medications, and assess financial situation.
Once we have determined your care needs we put together senior care options that can accommodate your medical needs and fit within your financial budget.
Implement plan of care. If the care plan requires transitioning into a senior care facility or bringing in-home care, we then contact each facility/agency to coordinate senior care services. We schedule a tour of each facility. We can accompany you to visit each facility and be there when an In-home care provider visits with you.
We follow up to ensure for a smooth transition and continue to monitor your care needs. We are always available.
