AGING LIFE CARE MANAGEMENT®
As your loved one ages, you may feel overwhelmed by how many questions you have. Aging Life Care Management® includes healthcare advocacy, crisis management, health and wellness visits, specialized individual referrals (elder law and advanced directives, grief counseling, home therapy, etc.), and a personalized care plan. It’s never too early or late to begin planning.
Each year, approximately one-third of adults 65+ will fall in their home. Half of older adults 80+ fall annually, resulting in injury, long-term disability, and premature loss of independence. This is a preventable epidemic. Contact Passionate Healthcare for tips, strategies, and care planning to prevent falls.
EDUCATION & TRAINING
So, now you’re a family caregiver. What does this mean? It’s okay to have more questions than answers. You may feel like you have no time to yourself anymore in this new role, and you need solutions now. Passionate Healthcare & Wellness offers education and training for both family caregivers and professional caregiving companies.
