Helping families find the right care for their aging loved ones
Caring for a family member—an important job, but it’s not easy. So many important decisions to make and so much information to sort through. It’s hard to know the right way to go. You dream of solving all the problems quickly so your aging loved one will get the care they need now and, at the same time, you need to be realistic about your budget. Perhaps you and your siblings can’t agree. Maybe you’re not sure what your parent(s) really want. As you watch daily responsibilities overwhelm the one you love, you know you need to take action, but you don’t know where to start.
You could use some guidance, and we’re here to help.
We help you navigate the health care system, clarify your options, and understand your rights, saving you money, time, and stress.
We create a care plan that builds on your available resources, prevents hospital readmissions, and lets elders stay at home longer.
We meet in your home to discuss your situation, evaluate your needs, and plan a road map to FEARLESS AGING.
Most people contact Sage Solutions at a time of transition, when challenges require a second opinion to help you make important life decisions. An outside professional helps you navigate the care options, stay on track to reach your goals, and keep the family relationships intact. Common questions from clients are:
How long can Dad live at home?
Does caring for my parents have to be such a drain?
What do Mom and Dad really want, and how do I know that’s best for them?
How can I be sure Dad is taking his meds?
How do I get my siblings to carry their share of responsibility?
Mom’s neighbors say she needs help, but I live out of state. What should I do?
Each family is unique. Having worked with hundreds of situations over the last 25 years, Sage Solutions knows what’s necessary to customize a care plan or care team that is right for you. Our Foundation Package is an efficient way forward created by Health Gerontologist, Pat Sanborn, MS, MA.
