How It Works

Our goal is simple: to create a world where age does not define us.

We’re on a mission to help families succeed in the world of caring for aging loved ones. Our ultimate goal is that elders get the care they deserve and enjoy their best quality of life possible.

We provide objective, personalized advice and advocacy services to families so that they can anticipate, plan for and meet elders’ evolving personal health, financial and social needs as they age.

Basic Steps

1

Personal Needs Assessment

It all starts with understanding the wants and needs of your loved one. During our needs assessment, we probe an elder’s physical, mental, psychosocial, financial and legal situation. We also want to know what you (or your caregiver) can and cannot manage, what help and support you already have, and what you most need to improve your quality of life.

2

Custom Planning

We create short-term and long-term plans that are uniquely tailored to your elder’s needs.

3

Best Care Options

Our advocates are experts in knowing the best care providers in your -- or your loved one’s -- area. We take the guesswork out of selecting the best providers across home health agencies, assisted living facilities and nursing home or rehabilitation facilities.

4

Ongoing Care Coordination, Monitoring

You can’t always be there for your loved one, but we can. We provide ongoing monitoring of services to ensure your elder is getting the care they deserve and the support they need.

“Our advocates provide objective, knowledgeable advice when and where you need it”

Caring for an aging loved one can be overwhelming and stressful. Many times, family members feel uncertain about making elder care decisions because of the complexity of the healthcare system or difficulty in objectively assessing a loved one’s true situation. Our MyElder advocates provide objective, knowledgeable advice.
