The benefits of a senior placement service
One of the most difficult times in a person's life is the realization that they can no longer live by themselves and need to move into a facility where they can receive a higher level of care. It can be a frustrating and confusing time, and the search for the right facility can be truly overwhelming.
That's why there are many placement agencies available to help support families in looking for the right environment. But don't pick just any placement agency; it is very important that you choose an agency that does an in-depth assessment of the senior needing care, and has actually toured the home or facility they are recommending.
Too many times in my career as nurse practitioner have I seen a person placed in the wrong setting—this has led to an overall decline in health, increased emergency room visits and hospitalizations, and decreased quality of life
Because of my many years of work as a NP providing primary care in all of the different long-term care settings, I possess an in-depth understanding of all the different levels of care and truly understand the benefits and disadvantages of each setting. I will always perform a thorough assessment of each client and then sit down with the client and family/friends to discuss my recommendations.
