It was so good to have you at the discharge planning meeting for my father. You took charge and made sure that the rehab, the VNA, the family all knew exactly what the plan was.

Private Geriatric Care Management

Figuring out next steps and navigating the maze of resources can be overwhelming. It is hard to know where to begin. Even when services are in place sometimes you need an extra hand to make sure that appointments are kept and in-home care is monitored. And sometimes, you just need someone with experienced eyes and ears who can reassure and listen.
