As a seasoned senior care advocate, CEO Therese Johnson first provides a thorough eldercare consultation and assessment, usually completed in the senior’s home, which includes evaluating the home for safety hazards and providing recommendations and solutions.
Senior Care of Sacramento can serve as the administrator for yourself or your loved one, tending to the bureaucratic hassles of all health care access and funding needs.
We stand in for family members who are on vacation or live out of town, to assist with managing medication or hiring a caregiver, and to represent them at the hospital or senior care community.
Senior Care of Sacramento can:
Arrange for someone to ensure that the senior makes each doctor appointment, that results from test and procedures are analyzed and reported, and that prescriptions are filled on time and taken correctly.
Consult and advise on all things regarding Medicare, MediCal, HMOs, and supplemental secondary insurance coverage. For a fee we will review all bills from medical professionals, hospitals, and insurance companies for accuracy, and advise when items covered by insurance are not paid accordingly.
