To put it mildly, the eldercare system is confusing. Even we double check our materials when one of our parents needs helpespecially when they live several hundred miles away! How can you be expected to know what Medicare and Medicaid will pay for, or what an AAA is, or how to find a really great home health aide?
Let us help you figure out your options so you can focus on the really important stuff being a loving and supportive son or daughter.

Since 1999, Seniorlink has helped thousands of family caregivers just like you care for an aging parent or relative. Our experience has led us to an important conclusion about eldercare - Family caregiving for an elder is more than just getting facts and information.
Sure, you need to know the right phone number, or who to call, or information like what Medicaid will pay for (or not!). We are great at all of that, but so are many other services - some for free and some for hire.
What we do best is help you turn the notes into music - to take information about your eldercare situation and help you think through all of the stumbling blocks that we have observed over the years. Like how to deal with the fact that many elders resist change and may reject attempts to do something a different way. Or how to handle things when dad is unwilling to allow you to help him with the finances. Or what to do when your brothers and sisters are in disagreement over what to do next - leading to arguments and indecision. This is what we do - we are eldercare experts with just one goal: Turn information about mom or dad into a plan that really works - a plan that helps your elder live as independely and with as much dignity as possible, while giving you the peace of mind you deserve.
Nothing but independent, objective and professional help on elder caregiving.
