Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) February 21, 2006
The time has come. The baby boomers have grown up, and now they are responsible for handling the problem of how to care for their aging parents. It’s a problem our nation is struggling to solve before the baby boomers themselves need care. During a time of increased disease and disability, when the details of what is needed and how to get it are a total mystery to most people, there is a resource that can customize a solution for every family. Patricia Grace, Senior Care Specialist, answers the needs of seniors and their families. She founded Aging With Grace to assist seniors and their families in assessing their current situation and abilities, making specific recommendations for support, referring to appropriate sources, guiding them through the process of selecting providers, arranging appropriate placement if necessary, and advocating for the senior person.
Patricia Grace is a Philadelphia native who has worked for over 15 years in various senior care settings. She has identified local resources for every possible need a senior and his or her family might have. After working in this area, she has cultivated many referral relationships; and she has firsthand experience with the local senior care professionals; i.e., physicians, hospitals, home health agencies, assisted living communities, rehabilitation and long term care facilities, financial advisors, estate planners, elder law attorneys, etc.
“Once you identify that your elderly family member’s needs are changing, you have to take a leap of faith and make a decision to get involved. Your responsibility to your family member is to find the best solution possible for his or her situation. I can help you do that. I am an advocate and a problem solver who will study your particular family’s needs and guide you through this transition. This allows you to resume your role in the family of child, spouse, whatever the case may be, rather than being the caregiver.
Making these kinds of life-changing decisions is never easy, but when you are able to work with a professional with many years of experience in helping families understand their options, you can rest assured your search will be simplified, better informed, and less stressful,” adds Ms. Grace.
Aging With Grace offers a free Elder Care Referral Service and an Enhanced Geriatric Service. A consultation with an Aging With Grace professional is the best way to determine what services are most appropriate for your loved one’s situation. A Senior Care Specialist based in the Philadelphia area will assist you in assessing your needs and guide you in making the necessary choices and arrangements. Consultations are conducted without charge and timely by calling (215) 672-4088 or (215) 869-5810.
