Care Coordination

 

Compassionate Expertise Delivers Unparalleled Peace of Mind

The Secret Sauce of Life Care Planning

Older adults have problems that extend beyond the four corners of a legal document. That’s why the staff of Truhlsen Elder Care Law of Nebraska includes non-legal professionals. One of the most important non-legal roles belongs to elder care coordinators, the compassionate professionals who serve as a family’s guide during the long-term care journey.

Care Coordination Comes Standard

Every Life Care Plan includes the services of an Elder Care Coordinator who oversees the coordination of your loved one's health and long-term care, serves as your advocate for quality of care, and empowers you with the knowledge you need to make the right decisions for your loved one in every circumstance.

Your Elder Care Coordinator will:

  • Conduct care assessments to uncover potential problems and find solutions

  • Help you locate and hire in-home help or other services

  • Coordinate with medical and health care providers

  • Review medical issues and offer referrals to other geriatric specialists to provide appropriate care in a way that conserves financial resources

  • Help you plan for the possibility of incapacity or disability

  • Provide support, guidance, and advocacy during a crisis

  • Arrange for alternate housing, if needed

  • Help to coordinate the transfer and transportation of an older person to or from a retirement complex, assisted care living facility or nursing home

  • Provide education, counseling, and support

  • Prepare and guide you and your family through the Medicaid application process

  • Work in collaboration with other members of the support team serving your loved one, including long-term care administrators, accountants, physicians, and financial planners to ensure that the right professional is helping you at the right time

Now You Can Relax

Whether your loved one is living at home, at an assisted living facility, or in a nursing home, you can be confident that his or her care is being coordinated by a team of caring professionals who have extensive knowledge about the costs, quality, and availability of resources in the community.
