Somerville, Massachusetts (PRWEB) December 03, 2013
Complex medical issues and navigating the maze of decisions can overwhelm and confuse not only the elderly or disabled patient, but the family caregivers as well. Life Care Directions of New England was founded in response to the growing need for support and assistance as families cope with the complex issues of aging, chronic or degenerative disease, disability or special needs. The company is proudly celebrating its second anniversary, an important milestone and strong indicator of its acceptance and the growing need for its services throughout the community.
Lindsay Brennan, Executive Director of Life Care Directions, addresses the company’s mission. “We serve clients who are coping with a wide variety of circumstances - older adults with dementia and complex medical conditions, younger adults with developmental disabilities and mental health issues, as well as those whose lives have changed in a heartbeat due to something like a stroke or a traumatic brain injury. When our clients come to us they are vulnerable, frustrated, overwhelmed, and feeling hopeless. We take a comprehensive, family-focused approach, to support our clients and their families, determine the best plan of care, advocate for the best care and services, build consensus among families and providers, and manage the most complex of cases. Our goal is to stabilize crisis or transitional situations and implement proactive, sustainable care plans.”
