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.

elsewhere. What can I do from here?

Special Care will help you find high quality, cost

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.
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
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.
