The ElderCare Blog
Taking from her experiences as a Certified Geriatric Care Manager, Registered Nurse, and daughter, Meg shares valuable knowledge about aging and caregiving for seniors, their families, and their caregivers.
"Meg... You have been an absolute God send for our family. We will never forget how you've supported our Dad and our family through what has been a few pretty tough years, thank you doesn't quite do it"
"Thank you for sticking with us. Your presence and care means the world to all of us."
"Thank you for sharing your insights these past few months. You have been an incredible help to me in trying to understand how to manage this stage of life with my parents."
"We are all so grateful for Meg and her involvement in this life stage we are walking through. We say to each other often "Thank God for Meg!"
- Betsy M.
If you are looking for someone to help you navigate life with an aging or disabled relative or friend, contact ElderCare! Valerie and Meg are warm, professional, knowledgeable and so, so helpful to caregivers.
My mental health improved 100% once we engaged them as a resource. After each appointment with my sister, Meg provides a detailed, observant report on her physical and mental health and well-being and is easily available for follow-up questions. She has a warm relationship with my sister, who very much enjoys her visits, even when Meg is urging her to move more! She is also a great liaison between us and the staff at the long-term care facility.
I can't recommend ElderCare highly enough!
- Caroline P.
Meg has eased my mind and warmed my heart because of the care she has given my mom. Before Meg, I was in the dark and guessing what was happening with my mom. She is a great link and intelligent life force for me since I am caring for my mom in another state. I don't know how I would survive without ElderCare Connections.
