Ongoing Support Services

An ElderCare Solutions of Michigan Care Manager will work diligently to help ensure our clients' comfort, adjusting the level of services as needed, making certain that their best interests, safety and happiness come first. Communication will be provided monthly or more frequently, depending on the needs of the client and wishes of the family. Our support services include the following:

Mini-monthly Assessment

As part of our ongoing services, we visit the client once a month as a preventive measure, to look for overall changes that often occur in nutrition, physical agility and cognition. We also watch closely for signs of social isolation. This objective perspective is important, because our professionals will recognize subtle changes that can be difficult to pick up, and will adjust services accordingly in order to reduce the likelihood of a crisis.

Patient Advocacy

Our Care Managers continually advocate and mediate on behalf of our clients. It is helpful to have a single source of contact for important medical and legal documents, as well as insurance information. We can assist with any dealings our clients may have with hospitals and doctors, advocating for the patient and providing insight to doctors regarding changes with the patient’s physical or cognitive condition. We also serve as an additional set of eyes and ears, listening to what medical advice is given and communicating any changes to family members and caregivers.

Family Mediation

We know that family stress accompanies the challenges of aging. Often family members disagree on the best course of action to take, or can be too close to the situation to be objective. Through family mediation, ElderCare Solutions of Michigan offers objective, professional assistance to help steer the family through the many decisions they are facing, identify appropriate options and help the family decide the most appropriate course of action for the ultimate well-being of the older adult, and peace of mind of the family.

The caring and connecting extends to us, as well as to our mother. Team members have emailed and phoned us with regular updates, offering options, encouragement and support as we navigated these unfamiliar waters. They have become like a part of our extended family. We honor the ElderCare Solutions of Michigan Team with gratitude and respect for the important work that they do.

~Aviva S., Commerce, MI

We feared the transition from independent living to assisted living would be tough on the client, but ElderCare Solutions helped at every turn. They found a company to clean out the old apartment (a Herculean task as our client had been a hoarder for years), visiting the client at the new residence and making sure his needs were met and that he was adjusting well. They stepped in to provide visitation, review his medications, take him to doctor appointments, purchase clothes that were not worn or stained, etc. Our client has thrived in his new home in large part due to the efforts of ElderCare Solutions of Michigan. We are fortunate to have a resource like ElderCare Solutions of Michigan to recommend to our clients who need Geriatric Care Management services.
