Care Management FAQ

Let us put your mind at ease.

The hospital seems to be in a hurry to discharge my father to a nursing home but he wants to go home.

It’s your father’s legal right to choose his preferred accommodations.  Our Owner can meet with hospital discharge personnel to review your father’s case and as long as it is determined that discharge is safe, we can help with arrangements for the provision of necessary care, services and durable medical equipment to expedite his return home.

The nursing home wants to discharge my wife from a rehab bed to a long-term care bed but we would both like her to come home.

Your wife is entitled to choose where she would like to live, provided safe accommodations are assured. Our Owner can meet with the nursing home’s Care Plan team to discuss your wife’s needs and can conduct an evaluation of your home. If it is determined that discharge to home is safe, we can recommend an agency or a referral service that can refer in-home caregivers, and our Owner can facilitate the procurement of any other prescribed services and/or durable medical equipment she may need to return home.

My husband and I have lived together for 52 years and the nursing home is telling me he can’t come home.

The nursing home cannot force your husband to remain in their care, provided a safe alternative is available. Our Owner can meet with the nursing home’s Care Plan team to discuss your husband’s needs. If, given your husband’s physical, medical and mental condition and an evaluation of your home environment, it is determined that he could be safely cared for in your home, we can recommend an agency or a referral service that can refer in-home caregivers, and our Owner can facilitate the procurement of any equipment or other services he may need once he is home.

My wife and I live in an Independent Living senior apartment and she has been diagnosed with a terminal condition. I can’t take care of her myself but we would both like for her to remain in our apartment.

Your wife can remain in your Independent Living apartment as long as she is well cared for and safe. Our Owner can meet with you and your wife to evaluate your home, and together you can tailor a specific plan for her care, services and social needs.

I’ve been using your services for three years now and feel it is time to move to a senior living facility. How do I determine which facilities are a good match for me and if I can afford them?

As a licensed Nursing Home Administrator with over 20 years’ experience, the Owner of YourLife can guide you in making the best choice for your next home.

I work full-time and care for my husband in our home. He doesn’t care for adult day programs in the area but can’t be left alone while I am at work.
