The real life case below (with the names changed, of course) represent the situations I commonly run across, and illustrate the ways in which I can help.

Mary

CaseStudy2Mary87The Challenge:

Mary was 87 years old and living alone. She was becoming increasingly paranoid and agitated. She could no longer cook meals safely on her own, and was neglecting daily self-care routines. Mary had trouble trusting anyone and refused offers of help. She had problems limiting her alcohol. Her only family member—a son—lived far away.

Care Plan:

We provided comprehensive care management from 2007 until the time of her passing:

  • 24/7 Caregivers—implementing and monitoring services
  • Managed medical team of physicians
  • Medication Management
  • Nutritional Plan
  • Helped client reduce drinking
  • Assisted with relocation to assisted living facility
  • Regular communication and updates to son
  • End of life support—helped with end of life decisions, hospice, comfort care

The Results:

Mary is truly a success story. By acting as her advocate, we were able to develop trust and rapport. She became calmer, less agitated, and more cooperative. She stopped drinking. We were able to provide her son with peace of mind from a distance. Her social life improved with the addition of a full-time companion. We’re proud of helping guide Mary safely through her journey.
