Elder care navigation looks at the elder's legal, financial and healthcare. Our stated goals are as follows:
- Make sure our client is getting the right care in the right setting;
- Make sure the client's caregivers (family) gets the right support in making the right decisions;
- Making sure our elder is using the appropriate government benefits, such as Medicaid, Medicare and VA benefits.
Thus, as parts of our life care plan, after making sure our client is in the right place getting the right care, we help make sure his or her assets are protected from the high cost of nursing home or assisted living care. We will look to Medicaid planning and VA Benefits planning to assist with these matters. This also means that any costs to paid to help the elder usually pays for itself many, many times over in good care, peace of mind and more.
