DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES: It can be so stressful when you have someone
you love who is aging and may need additional support. Family and friends
may be saying, ¡§What are we going to do? How are we going to discuss
this with family? Where can we get some assistance so that we know that
we are doing the best that we can for our family member or friend?¡¨ The
unknowns may be great and along with the feelings and emotions is that
big HELP! What do I do? How do I know what is needed? What is the first
step? A good first step is to call for an assessment. The discussions will
provide answers to many of your questions and create a cleared picture
of what is today and future needs. The best time to plan in the aging
process is before the decline of health and well-being occur. Often we
do not have that opportunity or it may be something that people just do
not feel comfortable discussing. To support my clients, I offer Assessment
and planning services to aging adults and families through consulting and
counseling services, resources, advocacy, and other assistance through life
transitions. I can assist you during this difficult time. Call 415-847-4561 today
