Transitional Care & Placement Packages We can help you set the stage for a positive adjustment

Let our team of professional care managers and caregiver specialists work with you to create a comprehensive package that ensures a successful transition to or from hospital, home or facility.

A move to a care facility without the proper support can be a difficult transition for families and residents. Aging Outreach Services works with the resident, family and facility staff to ensure additional support and care when you need it most. A successful move will help set the stage for a positive adjustment and create a support network of resources. Together, we can create a plan that works!

Preparing for a move takes time and planning. If you are considering a move, consider the benefit of an experienced care manager to help you coordinate care.

  • Individual assessment of current needs and preferences
  • Information on local care facilities and community resources
  • Information regarding financial resources such as Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans benefits and Long-Term Care Insurance
  • Explanation of different levels of care and expectations including; independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing, hospitalization, hospice, private-duty and home health services

Care Coordination Plus Package: 10 hours of Care Management to provide all of the Care Coordination Package services and tour facilities of choice, assistance with entrance or admission paperwork and all the extras needed to initiate and coordinate a move – $650

    all services provided through Aging Outreach Services. When unanticipated needs occur or your loved one is sent out of the facility for medical services, we can provide assistance day or night with one phone call.

 

All AOS services can be utilized individually or bundled. Our initial consultation is always free, to help determine what services or combination of services will best meet your needs. From finding a care manager to organize a plan to referring you to a caregiver to provide hands on services, we can provide the scope of care you need.
