Although long-term institutional care may be the only answer for some elderly persons
Scotch Plains, New Jersey (PRWEB) July 30, 2009
The Mills Group LLC ("TMG") announced today that the firm is now offering ElderCare/PrimePlus services. ElderCare/PrimePlus is a service wherein the staff of TMG will act as the eyes and ears of absent family members to ensure that elderly persons can remain living independently, with dignity, and assured of receiving the care and services for which they are paying.
TMG recognizes that as America ages, many elderly persons in the community no longer have family members nearby to assist them with independent living. Family members living in other communities are concerned that their elderly loved ones receive proper care and services and that they are not taken advantage of by unscrupulous parties who prey on the elderly. Therefore, this service is being offered to assist the elderly in meeting their needs as well as to inform their family members of the needs of their elderly relatives and the degree to which those needs are being met by the proper caregivers.
TMG can assist the elderly, or their family members, in assessing the assistance required for independent living, help them locate and employ the appropriate caregivers in the community, and monitor the caregivers to make sure the proper level of care agreed upon is being received. The staff of TMG will work with other professionals (home health services, lawyers, repairmen, and others) to actually give the needed care and services. The firm will monitor the services provided by others and report to the client and family members on a montly basis or as may be warranted. The firm will also be available to monitor income and investments, account for the estate, pay bills authorized by the elderly person or appropriate family members, and accumulate and provide information to the proper persons in the event of unusual or unforeseen circumstances. A qualified firm associate will be assigned as the primary party in each engagement to ensure that a relationship builds between the elderly person and the firm's associate. This will enable the firm associate to be able to report to family members if additional or different assistance appears to be needed.
Darren J Mills of TMG stated that ElderCare/PrimePlus is a natural extension of the work they have been doing for their clients in the areas of tax return preparation, personal financial planning, accounting services and estate planning. "Although long-term institutional care may be the only answer for some elderly persons," he said, "we recognize that many of our elderly clients can, with the proper assistance, live out their lives in the comfort of their own homes. Nevertheless, we realize that for many of these persons, taking care of the daily demands of independent living may become too burdensome. We feel that ElderCare/PrimePlus Services offer the right mix of protection and assistance to help the golden years truly be happy ones."
