Graceful Aging Program
ElderCare 4 Families goes the extra step to ensure our clients are receiving the best home care.
The Graceful Aging Program, managed by our Senior Advocates, are included in ElderCare's hourly fee at no additional charge to our clients and their families.
ElderCare's Graceful Aging Program (GAP) is another way we surpass ordinary to achieve extraordinary results.
Our goal is consistency and continuity of care.
After the Senior Advocate's initial assessment, each client and/or their family is offered a detailed plan of care, including recommendations and referrals.
Executing the plan of care can include all or any part of the following:
- Determining safety concerns and fall risks in the home and attaining the best solutions (including partnering with contractors and coordinating the work)
Assessing any medical equipment needs and working with the physician’s office and medical equipment company or contractor
Researching community resources for solutions to specific needs
Implementing programs to prevent rehospitalizations and More
The Senior Advocate will continue to manage an individual’s home health care using the Graceful Aging Program (GAP). This program involves regular meetings with the Senior Advocate to precisely monitor needs and care. In addition, the Senior Advocate will routinely monitor the performance of your caregiver in the home. These visits allow us to review in-home documentation, reassess the client's care and condition, update plans of care, and communicate with approved family members or other contacts.
Issues that may be addressed on a on-going basis as part of the Graceful Aging Program include:
- Family and relationships
- Meals or shopping

- Community resources
- Social life
- Medical and other appointments
