Frequently Asked Questions

My parents live in Cincinnati but I live elsewhere.  I worry about them and would like reassurance that they are OK and have good help.
Having a Care Manager who is your local eyes and ears provides solace to many out of town family members who have busy lives yet worry about their parents.  We establish a relationship, communicate with out of town family by their preferred means, such as phone, email or text.  We help you get in-home care, and identify when decisions need to be made.  We empower you to provide the level of care you want and can be hands-on or more consultative depending on your needs.

I live in Cincinnati and my parents live elsewhere.  What can I do from here?
A Care Manager in Cincinnati can help you assess the type of care or intervention you need for your loved one and ultimately, put you in touch with a care manager in another location.

I have lots of financial questions:  Care management is a private service; my parents don't have a lot of money. I thought Medicare, the VA or other agencies paid for this sort of help.  How do I know if I can afford services?
Our initial free telephone consultation will give you an idea of the possible options and associated costs.  Special Care will help you find high quality, cost effective care options you might otherwise not have known about.  We can explain what services are available to your loved one through their insurance and other programs and help you find the best care based on your budget.

How do I get my loved one to accept help?
It is frustrating for a family to see a loved one refuse needed help.  We can't promise that we can always solve this problem, but we are behavioral specialists and through meeting with you can often find a "way in" so that your loved one receives the help he or she needs.

Our families disagree about our parents' care needs.  Can you help?
Well meaning and loving people from the same families see things differently and sometimes this can affect the type of care and interventions provided.  Families often agree to have an assessment completed by a professional who can talk through the options, advantages and disadvantages of various approaches.  A Life Care Manager can then help manage and coordinate the care or guide the family to provide the care.

I'm not sure my parents should be living at home anymore.  Is moving them the right thing to do?
This is a decision we help families make based on the family's values, priorities and resources as well as the condition of their loved one. Then with compassion and sensitivity we help implement the decision.
