When older adults want to stay in the place they call home, they sometimes need help with tasks such as showering, dressing, preparing meals, doing laundry, and getting to doctor’s appointments. Chores that were once simple, like filling a prescription, become complicated, as calls to the pharmacist, the doctor, and the specialist, can be required. It can all be overwhelming.
How We Helped
We help simplify lives. We help with medication management—or any task related to daily life. “Working with us is like having one of your grown children in town,” says Meaghan Carrier, Vice President of Health and Member Services. “Care management is a service we provide to older adults who might need support in organizing their lives, including support if they want to thrive living at home. We find ways to help them—whatever their needs may be.”
Glenmeadow residents and Glenmeadow at Home members can receive care that ranges from one hour of help per week to 24 hours of care each day. Meaghan stresses that Glenmeadow’s team can help transition clients after a health crisis and as their health improves. We will also keep a watchful eye on them in case there’s another emergency. “We try to be really proactive in anticipating people’s needs before they have them,” she says. “We think about how to support someone through a crisis before that crisis happens.”
