How Do You Keep Your Patients at Home?
WithIntegrated ElderCare®. Our unique “model of care” is often duplicated, as studies have shown that our approach is extremely beneficial to the patient and their family. Integrated Eldercare® is based upon our belief that when we care for an Alzheimer’s or dementia patient, we are caring for the patient, caregiver and the entire family as a whole.
Most of our patient’s not only suffer from Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, but have been diagnosed with other chronic conditions such as: diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, congestive heart failure (CHF), anxiety and/or depression.
Our care managers create, implement and monitor an ElderCare Plan® that not only provides ongoing and continuous care, but that incorporates all of the medical, physical, social, psychological and spiritual needs of the patient. Each care manager directs a multidisciplinary team that assures that all of the patient’s needs are met. Learn more here!
