As we age, health concerns, like chronic illnesses, cognitive issues, mental health disorders, and physical injuries, tend to become more prevalent. When these concerns grow more complex, it becomes more difficult to manage them alone or with limited assistance from family and friends. With help from the care managers at Aegis Care Management, you can get the elderly and aging support services you or a loved one need to stay healthy and happy in the later stages of life.
Our Specialized Services
At Aegis Care Management, our services are tailored to meet the needs of each of our clients. However, we also offer specialized care for older adults and other specific populations. For our elderly and aging clients, we go beyond our base services to provide care management that suits their needs, including:
Falls can be dangerous at any time, but they are especially hazardous for seniors. As our bodies age, the amount of fat beneath our skin diminishes, leaving less cushioning for our bones when they make contact with furniture, the ground, or even car doors. Plus, our bones and muscles also weaken with age, making falls and other forms of impact that much more dangerous.
To keep you or your family member safe, our care managers will ensure that your home setup is conducive to safe mobility. Depending on individual needs, we may also help clients attain a cane, walker, or wheelchair or a device that can be used to alert others after a fall. When needs are greater, we can also provide a live-in aide to make living at home safer and more secure.
Mental Health Support
Mental disorders, like depression, anxiety, and dementia, can have a profound effect on older adults. These conditions are caused by a number of factors, and they may have very serious effects. With help from an Aegis care manager, you can learn about all available mental health resources. Whether this involves seeing a neurologist or attending mental health counseling, our knowledgeable staff will create a customized plan based on each individual’s unique needs and help clients follow these directives
Advanced Care Planning
As client advocates, we offer help with advanced care planning for our senior clients. This sort of planning includes, but is not limited to, the following services:
- Educating clients about life-sustaining treatments
- Helping clients share their values with their loved ones
- Developing advanced directives about medical treatment
Advanced care planning is a key component of our client advocacy. By ensuring that our clients consider their wishes and record them appropriately, we can make sure that their voices are heard should they ever become unable to speak for themselves.
It can be difficult to understand what insurance will and won’t cover when it comes to healthcare. That’s why our care managers offer free benefits verification and assistance with long-term care and other health insurance claims processes. If you have any questions about coverage, our care managers will help you find the answers.
