You can count on me to identify challenges and offer viable solutions.
Because I have a wide range of personal and professional contacts in all areas of Monterey County I can readily connect you and your family to experts in every area of your care needs. I save clients and their families’ time. Time is money and energy.
I will present options appropriate for the budget available. I specialize in combining free services and fee-for-service opportunities.
Your family can rest at night and focus at work because I help create options that provide a safe and secure environment for your elder.
I am a sole practitioner…you will receive consistent high quality services from me because I know your situation.
Most of my clients begin with my basic interview assessment that includes:
A face to face appointment with any of your family who wants to meet with me….sometimes that is just the family support, other times the elder also attends. In most cases, I prefer to have everyone….it begins an important conversation.
Following the initial appointment, most clients benefit from having a comprehensive written plan that includes:
I usually recommend a follow-up appointment, 2 weeks after the initial appointment, to review the plan and present a strategy for the next action step.
This model of services is especially useful for clients and families who identify themselves as moderately stressed with the realities of caregiving support or who have multiple changing issues with memory loss, falls, poor nutrition or managing finances or legal concerns.
It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Shirley, who helped transition my mother to an assisted living facility. After a rough patch in my mom’s life, she now has reasons to go on and has things to look forward to doing. Shirley has our gratitude always.
