As an adult child of an aging parent, do you want to know that your mom or dad has a trustworthy person to call when they need help?  We'll be there.

Have you ever gone to the emergency room and wished you had an educated advocate?  We'll be there.

As the parent of an adult special needs child, have you wondered who you can trust to care for him/her when you are no longer able?  We'll be there.

If you are an aging or disabled adult and are feeling like you can no

longer keep up with your day-to-day tasks, we want to help. Maybe you

have trouble remembering to take your medications, or you may not have

really understood what your doctor said at your last visit. Perhaps you don’t

feel steady and are afraid of falling, but don’t really know what to do to be

safer. Or maybe you’ve had a recent change in your medical status and

simply aren’t able to do the things you used to do.

We recognize how hard it is to lose a piece of one’s independence, and we

promise to help you remain as functional as possible within a safe environment.

Your well-being is our greatest concern.

If you are a family member or caregiver, we salute you. We believe this is one

of the hardest roles you may ever play. Today’s adult children who are caring

for aging parents are juggling careers and raising children of their own while

doing their very best to provide the kind of care their parents need and deserve.

Sometimes there just aren’t enough hours in the day.

We encourage you as family members and caregivers to invest as much in your own health as you do in that of your parents. In a time where most employers are asking their employees to do more with less, the needs of aging parents are multiplying exponentially. We want to help. We would be honored to share the responsibility of your loved one’s care through trusting relationships and honest communication.

We'd like to share the following videos from one of our clients' daughter and son-in-law.  We simply asked them to talk about their experience with Care Connections from a family's perspective.

We encourage you to become an educated consumer…to learn the difference between a professional with a related degree and experience versus someone with a title and a certificate.
