Our goal is to help your loved one maintain their independence and overall quality of life.
Atlas Aging Life Care Management provides personalized assistance to family caregivers living nearby, or at a distance from their loved ones. We can assist with any number of specific tasks or oversee the entire range of care for family members. We provide assessment and care for elders living in Broward County and Southern Palm Beach Counties, as well as Zephyrhills and the surrounding areas in Florida.
Sometimes we are called upon by local families for a professional assessment only, to assist the families to make decisions regarding their loved one’s care. Often, the families will want us to help them to arrange and monitor these services if they do not have the time or resources to do this themselves.
We can also counsel clients to help them adjust to changes in their level of function or living situation. If families do not live in the area, we are frequently called upon to manage complete care of the client, monitoring and changing our plan of care as their needs change.
Our care management service is the brick on which our practice is built. Based on our initial assessment of the client’s needs, we formulate a plan of care. We conference with the families to discuss how these needs can be met, offering all existing alternatives. Once that is determined, we will put our plan into action and then monitor the client. This plan is continuously updated as the client’s needs change.
Our initial assessment includes the evaluation of all aspects that influence a person’s safety and quality of life. We assess the client’s mental ability, psychological status, physical abilities (to determine how their activities of daily living can be performed), medical conditions, financial situation (for short and long-term planning), legal situation (to ensure that all proper documentation has been prepared), and their social and religious situation (to identify needs that may not always be considered).
Our geriatric care managers are on call 24 hours a day/7 days a week. One of our most valuable services, especially for out-of-town families, is the ability to respond to emergency situations. The client always has someone to call, and if it is necessary for the client to seek immediate medical attention, we are available to communicate with the emergency room to ensure that the attending physician has all of the medical history and current medications, as well as provide the hospital with the proper family contact information.
