Are you stressed out caring for your aging parents or a mentally challenged loved one and are looking for some solutions ? Are you noticing changes in your loved one that cannot be overlooked or increasing need for help on a daily basis? Senior Adult Counseling Services is a company serving families who are caring for aging parents or a challenged adult. As a specialist in geriatric care management, we can provide advice and support to manage these transitions. We can help you avoid crisis management by connecting you to resources, educating you on the options that are available to you and your loved ones, and just providing you with reassurance that you need to move forward.
We can do all this by initiating an open conversation between the elderly adult and the adult family members to discuss concerns and wishes of those involved. The goal is to help manage the current situation, plan for the future and assist with the transitions from one stage to the next. Our services are offered on an as needed basis or may be a one time session or part of a long term individual care plan.
