Better Communication
Between Providers

Care professionals focusing on care coordination also make sure no information slips through the cracks. Many seniors take multiple medications and visit several care providers and specialists to manage their health. Our healthcare system traditionally relies on patients relaying information and updates about their care from one provider to the next. With care coordination, this responsibility moves to a professional committed to making all care smooth and transparent.

Improved Decision-Making Processes

For many conditions, there are several different courses of a treatment that a senior can choose from or combine. Weighing all the options to make a final decision can be an overwhelming experience, and a care coordinator can ease this by discussing each option’s pros and cons with seniors and their loved ones to empower them to make the decision that’s best for them. 

Help Navigating
Payment Options

Figuring out how different options are paid for can be confusing and overwhelming. A care coordinator can help families navigate the complexities of health and long term care insurance options versus private pay and Veterans benefits, and provide recommendations for resources and payment assistance to find the best care possible.
