    I am a past client of this provider

    I used Senior Alternatives when I moved back to the East Bay to spend more time with my aging father. While I was still living in New Jersey, I realized that I needed someone located close to Piedmont to assist with both the big picture as well as day to day home care issues. At the time, my father had early signs of Alzheimer’s as well as prior medical conditions. I had been told to look for a firm with both care management as well as home care, and looked at a number of companies. I chose Senior Alternatives based on the extensive experience and Masters’ level degrees of their care managers. They also pointed out their integration of care management and home care by pairing social workers with the home care being provided by the home care aides. I could not have been happier. My father got better medical care since they advocated and monitored everything, and they were able to adjust his medications and get him on some special ones for Alzheimer’s, which improved his quality of life, and reduced his dementia symptoms, too. Plus, they had excellent, sweet home care aides, and as my father’s Alzheimer’s got worse they were well-trained to be able to manage him. Toward the end, the care managers helped us deal with end of life decisions, enabling us to spend our remaining time focusing on him and not stressing out.

    All members of our interdisciplinary team are Masters-level geriatric specialists who have years of experience working in areas of dementia, hospice, chronic medical conditions and disabilities. In addition, we have developed relationships with reputable physicians, nurses and other geriatric professionals and utilize these experts as appropriate.

    While our focus is on older adults, we work with all ages of people where care management and homecare services are needed.

    What we do:

    Psycho-Social Assessment: After an initial phone consultation, our Care Manager will arrange a time to visit the client and involved parties at the client's place of residence and complete an initial assessment. The Care Manager will gather information about the older adult's emotional and health status, medication management, current health care providers, home safety, caregiver stress and burden, preferred social activities, long-term care financing, family and social support, and the older adult's ability to live independently in their present situation. The assessment will not only document and review current concerns, but will also assist in anticipating and planning for future needs.

    Specialized Care Plan: Based on information gathered during the initial assessment, the Care Manager develops a care plan to address areas of concern. Recommendations may include homecare, counseling, education, alternative living arrangements, socialization plans, medical, legal and financial referrals and benefit entitlements.

    In addition, the Care Manager can serve as the liaison between health care providers, other social service agencies and the client and involved family members. Care plans are regularly monitored for effectiveness and adjusted to address changing needs. If homecare is warranted, Senior Alternatives offer a unique homecare model that combines the expertise of our professional care management team with experienced, compassionate and dedicated caregivers. Because our company is small, we pride ourselves in being able to offer personal, immediate attention to all of our clients. We have a long track record of providing consistent high quality care.

    Support for Family Members: Our experienced staff knows how challenging it can be to ensure the safety and well-being of an older family member. Therefore, Senior Alternatives will often provide recommendations in the care plan to address easing caregiver stress brought about by family care giving responsibilities.
