Assurance Guardianship & Care Services, LLC

Services

My services are driven by you!  I will provide any and all of the services listed, at your request:

Assessment.
I usually start with a comprehensive assessment of the person that needs help, and their current environment, resources, and supports. I prefer to meet the person in their own home environment so that I can observe potential safety and other issues first-hand.

Recommendations.
Upon completion of the assessment, I will make recommendations for services and supports that can “close the gap” of the person’s unmet needs. These services can include everything from in-home caregivers to help with meal preparation and house cleaning a few hours a week, to suggestions for quality assisted living facilities or nursing homes if needed, and everything in-between.

Connection to Services.
I will connect you and your loved one to a wide variety of services in the community with whom I have established good working relationships over the past 10 years. I will contact these services and make the connections for you, and personally introduce you to the service providers, if you wish.

Care Management.
I will remain an active team player for your loved one and will continue to monitor your loved one’s status in person and by telephone, to ensure that they remain stable and happy with their services and that they continue to receive the services needed. I will also maintain close contact with the service providers involved and of course with you, to make sure that good communication is the rule regarding care of your loved one. We will be on-call and available 24/7 and able to respond promptly if an emergency or urgent situation should arise.

Guardianship.
Occasionally, due to cognitive issues, an individual needs assistance to make important medical, residential, and other decisions to help ensure their own safety and well-being. A Guardian is someone who is appointed by a Probate or other District Court to perform this important role. If chosen and appointed by the court, we will serve as an individual’s Guardian.

Some examples of cognitive conditions which may warrant the need for the services listed above include but are not limited to: all types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s; stroke; mental illnesses such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder; chronic alcohol or drug dependence and abuse; autism, including Asperger’s syndrome; developmental disabilities; various physical disabilities.
