WHAT ACCOUNTABLE AGING DOES:

Accountable Aging Care Management work in collaboration with all elder service providers, throughout the continuum of health services and care settings.

Although you will most likely experience only a single point of contact with your care manager, know that he or she is backed up by a multi-disciplinary team that works together on each client situation. Our combined professional experience and personal backgrounds help us provide competent, compassionate solutions to all eldercare issues. Accountable Aging Care Management Reporting

Our team consists of specialists in the following fields:

nursing, social work, government benefits and programs, religion, gerontology, accounting, nutrition, nurse practitioner, education, and dedicated office personnel who support us on a daily basis. You and your family are able to come to us for virtually anything you need or when you don’t know where to begin.

As the issues of aging are not limited to medical concerns, neither is Accountable Aging Care Management.

The advantage of our firm is that our team has experts in many areas from home care, rehabilitation, nursing, faith counseling, financial oversight, social work, government benefits and programs, gerontology and education. Although we work as a team, we provide a single point of contact for the care providers, elder and family. It just makes it easier for everyone.

One of your most important decisions will be identifying the services that are better provided outside the family circle. That is the time to call Accountable Aging Care Management.
