Geriatric Care Management – Sumter SC and the Midlands Area
Families are linked by love not necessarily by location.
You may have a parent, an Aunt or another relative or friend who needs assistance due to disability or issues related to aging. Some of these issues may be increasing physical dependence, inability to handle daily life issues such as general business affairs and mild depression due to loneliness or the situation could be as serious as becoming confused and unable to direct self-care.
They need help to remain in their homes or they may need help in living happily in an assisted living home or a nursing facility. You may have questions regarding resources, funding issues, professionals that can help them, long-term care insurance issues, Social Security and other concerns. We at Golden Years want to help you.
