Distance Caregiving

 

When you don't live close to your elderly loved ones it can be very stressful. You probably have called your aging parent and wondered if they are really doing as well as they say. An Eldercare coach can help you know what questions to ask and what to look for on a visit home. They can also become your information coordinator, helping aging parents understand the confusing maze of home health aides, insurance benefits, and durable medical equipment.

The answers you need to ensure quality of life and optimum care for your loved ones is only a phone call away, no matter where you live. Sound Options Eldercare Family Coaching gives the caller immediate access to quality information including:

  • Home Caregiver resources
  • Housing alternatives
  • Understanding medical & health information
  • Insurance & Medicare questions
  • Coping tools
  • Family coaching
  • End of life planning

In a crisis?

Contacting Sound Options for Eldercare Coaching may be the best call you make! Here is an example:

"My partner and I live in Vermont and both of us have aging parents who live in Washington State. When I got a call from the hospital informing me my mother had just had a stroke, I was at my wit's end. A friend told me about Sound Options. Over the phone with a Geriatric Care Manager, I was able discuss the situation and come up with a plan. I was so relieved! I decided to hire her to help me manage mom's health on an ongoing basis. She became my eyes and ears as well as mom's advocate with the doctors and hospital. Recently my partner's elderly parents began having health problems. Luckily, we knew right away who to call for help. The peace of mind Sound Options has brought us is priceless and the communication we get on how our parents are doing is excellent. And to think it started with a simple phone consultation!"
