Let us help you manage your parent’s care.
Many families can benefit from Care Management. Your personal Care Manager from Generations solutions is a nurse, nurse practitioner or other healthcare professional who utilizes a holistic, client-centered approach to caring for older adults and families facing health and or social challenges. Their guidance empowers clients and families to better navigate the health care system and plans of care form different doctors. This optimizes the outcomes of medical care, maximizes client independence, reduces worry for families, and minimizes or eliminates time off work for family caregivers.
Care Managers serve as knowledgeable healthcare advocates who maintain relationships with clients and their families. They make sure care is coordinated and that everyone affecting the care plans or involved in the care plans is on the same page. The Care Manager offers professional expertise, community resource coordination, and compassionate support for you and your loved ones.
