The COVID-19 pandemic has been particularly challenging for seniors and their loved ones. Seniors are disproportionately impacted by the virus, in particular those with underlying conditions like heart problems and COPD. In an effort to maintain social distancing and decrease contact with potential contagions, many seniors have become progressively isolated from their family members. Without routine socialization and attentive care, loneliness and depression along with memory problems linked to dementia and other diseases can creep in. In response to these difficult circumstances, many seniors and their families are pursuing the assistance of a care manager.
Care managers help families make sure that their older loved one is safe and taken care of, even in unprecedented times such as these. Care management services can be a great help with coordinating hospital appointments and in-home care so that your loved one is receiving prompt care in spite of social distancing restrictions. Care managers are up-to-date and compliant with COVID-19 regulations, and use their professional expertise to help your loved one live more safely and comfortably at home. They can supply moral support in trying times and help with the finer details of care so you’re able to rest easy knowing your loved one is well taken care of. With a care manager working on the ground and communicating with you directly, you’ll know what’s happening in your loved one’s life despite the distance and be empowered to make decisions about their care.
Care management services can encompass a wide range of offerings, such as:
- Evaluating care needs and implementing in-home care services
- Coordinating doctors’ appointments and arranging transportation
- Advocating for the older person to healthcare providers
- Arranging respite care to give family caregivers a break
- Making referrals to financial and legal professionals as needed
- Assisting with living arrangement transitions
- Facilitating crisis management in the event of emergency
