We simplify the process and identify/ mitigate the issues that make finding good eldercare a challenge. We ensure that our clients:
*Get the right solution at the right time in the right way.
*Don’t have to leave their homes to find what they need
*Have access to the best medical, residential, and custodial care
*Have access to the newest research and clinical trials
*Have the tools to make informed decisions
Our mission is to teach attorneys, financial services professionals, corporations, government officials & others about issues facing older adults. Our programs create a better understanding of basic brain functions, identify normal aging versus delirium or dementing diseases, differentiate among various care options and their costs, and assist professionals in creating legal and financial planning scenarios to address client needs in the context of cognitive decline. Think of this as “what you need to know in order to make a plan."
