Our team of licensed and accredited professionals help families respond to new and urgent challenges with solutions and local resources only a skilled professional can provide.
Family Caregiver in Need of Coordination
According to a 2016 AARP study, long-distance family caregivers incurred the highest out-of-pocket costs when helping their care recipients – an annual average of $11,923. Home Care should be well planned to save you money.
Sound Options’ Geriatric Care Managers provide local and expert guidance for the family members who can’t visit their parents at the drop of a hat. A Care Manager can be the eyes and ears for those family members concerned about their parent’s changes in health, social, and financial well-being.
Local and National Professionals
Geriatric Care Managers are a valuable resource for legal, financial and other service professionals who advise their clients on basic and complex life decisions. Sound Options works with Elder Law Attorneys, Estate Planners, Wealth Managers, Trust Officers and Guardians – just to name a few.
Corporations, Institutions and Benefit Programs
Sound Options’ virtual Eldercare consultations can reduce absenteeism and presenteeism by helping employees navigate the challenges of caring for an aging loved one. Care Managers respond to calls with affection, experience, and reassurance, answering questions clearly -- breaking down needs and activities into a series of steps and accessing the appropriate resources needed.
By leveraging the VillagePlan network, our Care Managers can return a call within hours – coordinating visits with parents in the hospital, arranging in-home services, and matching the appropriate resources needed to help with transitions based upon the company benefit plan.
