Family Connect Care provides transitional care management before placement, at no additional cost to the family.

Placement is only rarely a simple process. Every facility is different, as is each person needing care, so it’s critically important to match the two during the placement process. This helps ensure the selected facility meets the needs of the person needing care, which includes matching memory needs, physical needs, social needs, medical needs, and financial needs. When Family Connect Care gets involved, a placement begins with an interview (if we haven’t previously done a full assessment) so the spectrum of needs can be assessed and the specific needs of the family identified. We then make calls and perform site visits to narrow down options and simplify what is often a daunting process for families. Site visits are then conducted with families, who make the ultimate decision but with strong support from us. We then help with all arrangements needed to move the new resident from his or her current situation, whether it’s a home, hospital, nursing facility, or another residential facility. It can be a complicated and stressful process for families, so we do everything we can to make the transition go smoothly.
