I remember when I got the call. “Your mom fell down and she is in the Emergency Room.” Not again!
When a couple of hours of home care suddenly becomes 24-hour home care, the game changes! If you are paying someone to be responsible for everything from bathroom duties, to fall prevention to medication management, you are going to see an increase in money spent and an increase in family stress.
While most people’s first choice is to stay at home, as it was for my Mom, many families realize that finding a high-quality care home is a safer and more cost-efficient solution. My Senior Navigator is my new business devoted to finding Care Homes, Dementia Care, Assisted Living, Independent Living for clients who are ready to make that step. And, for those who insist on staying home, San Luis Obispo Caregivers has over 100 pre-screened independent caregivers available to help.
As an expert in the field, I have personally visited every licensed community in SLO County, accessed their state reports and understand the subtle differences between communities. My business is designed to be free for my clients by charging a finder’s fee to the home that is selected.
Most clients start out by trying to do this on their own, but often don’t find all of the available options and don’t have information on how to qualify for certain benefits. We can help you make the best decision possible. I will research all of your available options and assist you by personally touring the communities with you.
