Senior Living Placement Services
Talem Home care will help with what could be an overwhelming situation and turn it into a smooth transition for both the senior and their families.
For our clients, we offer free hands-on services that assist in finding alternative living situations for those who are unable to continue living at home. We can also help find the appropriate in-home assistance so that the senior is able to continue living at home.
Types of living situations may include:
- Independent living communities
- Assisted living communities
- Skilled communities
- Board and care homes
- Alzheimer's and dementia communities.
We complete a non-medical assessment to determine the needs and desires of the senior. This includes the care level needed, the ideal location, and the financial situation. We also obtain the medical information to help in finding the proper community. (A medical release is signed by either the Senior or the POA)
We help explore all financial assistance that may be available such as Long Term Care Policies, VA Aid and Attendance Benefits, and Savings to name a few. We also help determine if Medicaid is in the near future.
Talem Home Care tours the community and evaluates the care levels, cleanliness, menus, activities / socialization, and exercise programs. Based on all of the criteria obtained in our interviews with the family and the senior, our goal is to provide 3 different options to our clients and their family. (There are however times that there may only be one option, based on either location, or financial position.) We will then take the family and/or the client to the communities and take them on a tour of the community.
We have a very large network of professionals that are able to help in completing the move, such as: downsizing, space planning for the new home, estate sales, as well as movers. All of these services are "fee for service"
We also work with professionals that are able to help with the Medicaid process, The VA Aid and Attendance Benefit, and we work with attorneys that can help with the POA process, should this be needed.
