After an initial consultation, our services begin with a thorough assessment of the client’s condition, health and prognosis. From these results, we construct a lifestyle care plan that can be easily followed and updated as the client continues to age and circumstances evolve. Our Services include:
Assessment and planning are key to developing appropriate care and lifestyle options for individuals as they age. Certain health conditions, behaviors and emotions can be key indicators of anticipated changes in an individual’s overall health and ability to functions independently.
Our individual assessments are designed to help you create the best possible care plan for your loved one. We provide a one-on-one, non-invasive physical, mental and emotional assessment with clients in our office or at your home as a basis for identifying and determining appropriate immediate and long-term needs and care options.

Our family consultations help you successfully navigate the often-challenging dynamic of group communication and decision making.
Oftentimes several members of the client’s family are involved in the decision-making process. We liaise with the family in our office to review findings and explain how specific financial situations, care resources and lifestyle options can benefit the client and family, and mediate when family members have differing opinions. Our family consultation services focus on
- Creating successful communication patterns
- Coping with difficult dementia behaviors
- Effective decision-making
- Recommendations for engaging activities
- Managing stress
- Dealing with feelings of guilt
