An Advocate By Your Side

Medical Assistance

If you’ve been in the hospital recently, you know that the experience can be overwhelming. As an advocate to our clients, we provide insight to doctors regarding changes with the patient’s physical or cognitive condition, listening to what medical advice is given and communicating any changes to family members and caregivers. On a case-by-case basis, we identify the appropriate level of involvement that is best for each of our clients.

Our Care Managers serve as the line of continuity, ensuring that recommended medical changes are carried out as needed.

Assistance with Hospital and Rehabilitation Discharge Planning

Upon discharge from the hospital, older adults may need to move to a more supportive environment. Our Care Managers ease that transition by first discussing the different levels of care, i.e. short-term rehab, independent living, assisted living, memory care, etc. After identifying the appropriate level of care, our Care Managers suggest several local facilities, discussing the pros and cons of each so the older adult and their family can make an informed choice. Not all supportive environments are the same. We know what questions to ask and what to look for to ensure the right fit and best services for the client.

If an older adult is able to return to their home, we ensure continuity of care by meeting with hospital personnel and arranging for necessary supportive services such as transportation, oxygen, a caregiver, and any other home medical equipment that is needed.

Insurance Benefits

Many times a client or family member does not understand or is unaware of their eligibility for specific insurance benefits such as those available through the Veterans Administration, Medicare or other long-term care insurance. ElderCare Solutions of Michigan understands these nuances and can assist in connecting the client with benefits for which they are eligible.

ElderCare Solutions of Michigan provides a much-needed service… As they develop a relationship with the patient, it is beneficial for me to have another individual “on the team” to interpret treatment recommendations to the patient, and, in particular, to help ameliorate the disruption that the inevitable restrictions in activity and independence may cause. They can definitely be an important source of comfort for patients who are often very frightened and anxious as they go through a difficult time in their life cycle.
