Our Services: Helping You Cope With The Changes & The Challenges
From diagnosis through end-of-life care
The primary goal of our Geriatric Care Management service is to clearly identify the problems, and recommend appropriate, realistic solutions, that improve the quality of life for the Alzheimer’s caregiver and the care receiver.
Our Alzheimer’s Geriatric Assessment is extremely comprehensive and begins with an in-depth telephone call to review your concerns as well as your current caregiving challenges. Call us today!
Coaching for Caregivers provides one-on-one support and professional guidance, to patients, caregivers, family and friends, to help them cope and adjust to issues related to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
Clients receive all of the benefits that come with attending a support group or caregiver workshop, but on an individualized basis, and in a warm and comforting environment.
Be sure to check out our Coaching for Kids™ program too!
From creating and implementing a care plan that enhances and improves your loved ones quality of life, to assuring that the hired care providers are providing exceptional care.
Making Moments Matter™ is a daily, person-centered program that enables caregivers to successfully meet the needs of those who are living at home, and who suffer from memory loss, by concentrating on their current abilities and maximizing their strengths.
Perfect for those unwilling or unable to attend adult day care, as well as those needing socialization and appropriate cognitive stimulation.
Activities and levels of engagement are based on the persons individual abilities, likes and dislikes, as well as their current level of cognitive function.
Caregivers and family members of those with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or other cognitive impairment never have to go through a crisis alone.
We provide local caregivers and families with counseling, coaching, guidance, support, and dementia specific resources to help you cope with the challenges of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
Properly managing the medications for someone with Alzheimer’s disease is a difficult task made even more complex when the patient is under the care of numerous physicians, all of whom are prescribing one, two or even three different medications.
Couple this with the fact that most caregivers find it difficult, if not impossible, to convince the person with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia to take their pills, in the correct dose, and at the correct time, caregivers can become angry, frustrated, and sometimes, just give up. We can help!
Our Learning Lighthouse Resource Library is also available to the Alzheimer’s community and is filled with books, DVD’s, brochures and other dementia specific information and resources all designed to help you provide the very best care to your loved one.
- Assistance with Placement
- Long Distance Caregiving Solutions
- Bill Paying & Household Management
- Professional Education
Most families want to do everything they can to keep the person with Alzheimer’s disease at home; but if the time comes when living at home is no longer an option, your Care Navigator will help you select the very best assisted living facility or nursing home based on your needs and the needs of your loved one.
Everything’s fine – and then something happens. A doctor calls in the middle of the night to say that your older parent 3,000 miles away has fallen and has been hospitalized. Or your mother, who lives several states away, calls to say she can no longer cope with your father’s dementia.
Many adult children must help from a distance when their older parents and other relatives need help. The task can be difficult, stressful, and time consuming. Our Care Navigators can help!
- Pay bills, balance checkbook, and assist with correspondence
- Review medical bills, insurance claims and reimbursements
- Manage all payroll and reporting responsibilities for privately hired workers
- Arrange and supervise home repairs and modifications
- Assist with entitlement applications

For Caregivers. For Families. For Friends.

Alzheimer’s Geriatric Care Management in South Florida
Geriatric Care Navigation helps Alzheimer’s caregivers and families feel reassured that they are never alone in facing their loved ones care needs.
Alzheimer’s caregivers are often overwhelmed with making choices for their loved one. Coping with current care needs and trying to anticipate the future can create stress and very often, fear of the future. The good news is caregivers never need to feel alone and can feel hopeful that even in complicated situations, solutions exist to make a positive difference for the Alzheimer’s caregiver and the care receiver.
The Care Navigator directs a multidisciplinary team that ensures that all of the patient’s needs are met by partnering with physicians and other care professionals to advocate and create a cohesive care team. Care Navigation Plans not only provide ongoing and continuous care, but they incorporate all of the medical, physical, social, psychological and spiritual needs of the patient and often the direct caregiver as well.
