Personal Care Management Program

Caring for a loved one is difficult enough when they live nearby, but when they live hours away or across the country, caregiving becomes much more complicated. It can be stressful and exhausting, and it can also bring about a fair amount of guilt. You may feel bad about not being able to visit as often as you’d like, or you might be worried about your loved one’s safety and comfort when you aren’t there to ensure they’re taken care of.

Spotting Subtle Changes in Your Loved One's Health

We've all heard it: "I'm fine, honey, I can handle everything." But what if your loved one isn't quite telling the whole truth? Subtle changes in health, behavior, or daily routine can be early warning signs that they need more support. Whether it's your aging parent forgetting appointments, your sibling struggling with household chores after surgery, or a family member with cognitive challenges experiencing new difficulties, knowing how to monitor these subtle changes is key to ensuring their well-being.

JFSA’s Personal Care Management Specialist can help!

 

Our PCMS becomes your family’s partner in caring for your loved one, reducing the burden that family members experience. Long-distance caregivers tend to find frequent visits with their parents to be expensive, time-consuming, and difficult to balance with work and family obligations, but in-person check-ups are crucial. 

Our team members are knowledgeable about all kinds of benefits, programs, and resources available at the local, state, and federal levels. They are also familiar with many service providers in their area, how much they cost, and the quality of their services. Managing and monitoring all aspects of a loved one’s life is hard work, but JFSA’s Personal Care Management Specialists are well-versed in each of these areas, making them excellent advocates.

We can function as a lookout for your loved one, ensuring that the senior is safe, healthy, and content while keeping family caregivers near and far up to date on their condition.

We are here to form a partnership with you and your family to ensure that your loved one is well taken care of no matter how much distance separates you. We will create an individualized care plan for your loved one while keeping their lifestyle and personal goals in mind, along with the level of support needed for the family.
