Care giving is similar to a dramatic play, where the ending is already known, but the actual story is full of twists and turns, highs and lows and peaks of joy and sorrow. Although you already know the ending, looking after a parent in their time of need can be very rewarding but challenging.Aging requires making changes. Older adults need emotional support for grief, lack of privacy, anxiety and other issues.

These transitions are not easy for most of us. That's why Live Your Best Solutions examines a families situation holistically, considering important factors such as:

  • Mental Health
  • Physical Health
  • Financial Resources
  • Personal Preferences  

Using this information as a starting point, Live Your Best Solutions acts as a knowledgeable and experienced guide.

Many families hire  Live Your Best Solutions at a point of transition.

A few common scenarios include:

  • The older adult wants to maintain their independence and wants help navigating the different options for help.
  • When the family realizes that Mom or Dad are struggling to maintain their homes but want to age in place.
  • Choosing a home care agency to help the senior at home.
  • Moving between different levels of housing.
  • Wanting to create a simpler life.
  • During a hospital stay to prepare for the patient’s discharge.
