How We Work With You
Quality of life for elderly family members can unexpectedly change due to health issues, financial challenges or some loss of independence, leaving adult children or elderly spouses having to pick up the pieces of unprepared arrangements for the care of their parents or partner.
Experiencing little in the way of coordinated, holistic caregiver support in the broader community, Aging With Grace has developed customizable programs to assist in the preparation, planning, and implementation of the four primary areas of support: Legal, Financial, Home, and Personal.
Book a Family Caregiver Assessment
A Family Caregiver Assessment is an in-depth look at the current situation you and your elderly loved ones are facing. First identifying the most immediate needs to address helps to establish a starting point. This provides the foundation on which to create planning around longer term goals for both you and your family member in need of care.
The assessment will clarify a number of key areas including:
Understanding what you the caregiver are investing in your time and energy
Identifying the current familycare dynamics and desired outcomes
Establishing if critical legal documents are in place, ie: Power of Attorney
Confirming if standing fiancial documents allow caregiver access, ie: Wills, Estates & Trusts, or bank accounts
Documented medical forms for emergency care such as Assisted Living and Insurance claims
Desired quailty of life choices and stages, ie: Independant Living or In-home Support
Once complete, a Caregiver Action Plan will be created to show how we can best provide support and mentoring for caregivers.
When grace is joined with wrinkles, it is adorable. There is an unspeakable dawn in happy old age.

Caregiver Action Plan
Why Plan Ahead?
Creating a living family plan while parents and adult children are able to address important issues before something happens is ideal. Understanding desired wishes and the necessary legal and medical issues such as having a power of attorney, wills, and estates, and health plans in place create a structure that eliminates guessing what to do when the time comes to support the needs of each family member. Caregiver Action Plans help everyone clearly know what must take place when the time comes.
Help take the burden off your loved ones by making your quality-of-life decisions in advance, in a calm and thoughtful atmosphere.
