You might still be wondering…
How much do your services cost?
You can view our current fee schedule here. We bill by the hour and the cost of our service greatly depends on your level of need. Your needs fluctuate day-to-day and depend on many factors including the amount of family support, your medical needs, whether or not you are in a crisis, and whether we are handling your finances and health care or just one or the other. During the intake process we discuss the cost of services, your financial picture, and whether or not we are a good fit.
What if I have a family member that wants to be involved in my care?
What if I’m unhappy with your services?
We want you to raise any concerns you have directly with us. We are confident we can work together to find a solution. You can choose to terminate our services if we are serving as your power of attorney and/or health care representative.
How can I (or my family) be certain my finances are handled properly?
My circumstances aren’t urgent; when is the right time to line up services?
The earlier the better! You can call us at any time to see if we are a good fit for your future needs. It is best to plan for your future before you are in a crisis.
Do you prepare wills, power of attorney, and health care representative documents?
What is your service area?
What do you do for a typical client?
Our role in a case depends on the level of need. If an individual is healthy and stable, we might not have to step in right away. Once their needs increase, we can be present to help. For example, if a client experiences a health crisis and then needs ongoing advocacy, then we are present during and after the crisis.
Other individuals need assistance with all aspects of their health care and finances. In those situations we can do the following:
- Assess level and type of care and care plan needed
- Create quality care plan and make sure it is functioning
- Support and guide with issues around long-term care
- Advocate for care and quality in the health care system
- Coordinate key support entities – doctors, therapists, home care
- Arrange for needed services such as legal and financial preparedness
- Placement support into assisted living or skilled care
- Monitor care in a facility
- Medication management support
- Transport to and attend medical appointments
- Provide personal support and encouragement
- Anticipate and prepare for future needs
- Pay day-to-day bills
- Manage assets including real estate, business assets, vehicles, etc.
- Sell property when needed
- Work with investment advisors, financial planners, and attorneys to create long-term financial plan
- Receive and manage income sources
