Our mission of serving seniors doesn’t just start after an individual makes Saint Therese home. Caring for an aging loved one can be one of the most uneasy, stressful milestones for families. To further complicate matters, parents and siblings often share varying opinions about how to best accommodate mom or dad’s newfound situation. Even with a wealth of resources available, figuring out what’s next can be overwhelming.
To help ease the transition, Saint Therese offers an ear to listen and a voice to help guide conversation called care coordination. Care coordination seeks to eliminate the confusion associated with planning senior care or housing and prepares you and your family for the aging journey. Our care coordinators can start with a phone call or meet you at home to listen and evaluate your unique situation. Then, together with your family, a plan is developed to address areas of concern. Even if Saint Therese is not the ideal fit, our care coordinators can help find solutions without any pressures of commitment.
Care coordination can:
- Host a conversation to hear your story then offer advice
- Help provide resources for moving, transportation options, housecleaning and companion visits
- Reconnect an individual to their faith or parish
- Find housing or home care options
- Offer caregiver support
- Train volunteers on Ministry for seniors
To set-up care coordination with you or a loved one, call Anne Marie Bartlett, Director of Care Management. Know that you are not committing to anything more than a phone call or a visit to help reduce the anxiety of knowing what to do and when. And, as part of our mission of serving seniors, care coordination doesn’t cost a thing.
