Are you noticing that your older loved one is more frail and a little slower lately? Is your parent forgetting to do basic things, like take their medication? Have there been more calls to the doctor and trips to the emergency room?
What you need is a plan. A well-thought-out, comprehensive plan designed around the needs of your older loved one. A plan that addresses safety, medication, socialization, assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), and that anticipates future needs, as the situation changes.
Call for a free phone consultation, where we will review your family's goals and your loved one's needs. I will present all the services I can offer, and leave you with a basic plan to get you started. You'll feel much more at ease, knowing you have a plan to follow. You can then decide which services you want and how often.
As your healthcare advocate and consultant, I will first meet with your older loved one and the family to learn your goals. Then a complete assessment, including a safety evaluation, will be done. I will then design the optimal care plan for your loved one to maximize their comfort and standard of living in their golden years. You decide how much involvement you will need from me.
After working as a critical care nurse for over 25 years, and over 5 as a hospice nurse, I have decided to focus on senior care planning, in an effort to improve seniors' lives and promote advanced planning. I have earned both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Nursing. My passion is working with seniors and maximizing their quality of life.
You can schedule a meeting with Margaret Kamajian, MS, RN, principle of Peace of Mind Senior Care Consulting, LLC in Glenview, IL, to review your older loved one's wishes, as well as the family's goals, and develop a basic plan of action.
