Helping Families Now and Throughout the Year!

As we all take time to reflect on the past year and wait in anticipation of what is in store for us in 2014.  I think back about 2013, of the countless number of families that Pam and I have been able to help and guide through times of stress and upheaval.

Just the other day – right before Christmas, I received a call from a woman and her daughter.  Their husband / dad, was in the hospital, just out of Skilled Nursing with the prospect of returning to Skilled Nursing.  They were overwhelmed about the options; what was the difference between Medicare and Medicaid; how do we protect her assets if dad goes on Medicaid; dad is a veteran – can that help; etc.  

We had a good discussion.  I was able to help educate them a bit on some of their options and connected them to a couple of resources, while coaching them with some tips for exploring Skilled Nursing Options.  They were very appreciative of the time we spent and I will be following up to see “how things are going”.

This is what we do at Assisted Transition – our core business is helping families navigate the many options of Independent Living; Assisted Living; Memory and Private Duty Home Care.  But along the way – we also provide a wide range of additional services and referral sources – depending on the needs and the situation.  The best part of all of this is that it is FREE.  No cost just to talk and see if we can help – that is what we are all about.

In the coming weeks, I will be sharing more stories and tell you more about my wife and myself.  In the meantime – enjoy the holidays and Happy New Year!!!
