|ATTENTION: In order to safeguard the health of my clients and to prevent further spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, no in-person visits will take place until the Massachusetts Governor’s “Stay At Home” Advisory has been rescinded, except in the highly unusual case of an emergency. Of course, I’m happy to speak with clients over the phone or video chat (like Zoom), and I’m happy to help (over the phone) get you set up with any computer software that might help us keep in touch.
If you’re not already one of my clients, please feel free to call or email so we can speak further. I always offer an initial phone conversation free of charge, especially to adult children and others outside of Boston with parents or loved ones in my service area.
Given the intense need among seniors and frail elders throughout this crisis—from grocery shopping to health care to transportation—I am happy to take on new clients during the quarantine period. The intake process can be conducted almost entirely over the phone, with the help of e-mail, secure document exchange, postal mail, and fax where required.
The safety and comfort of my clients and the peace of mind of their families are the driving forces behind my work. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you’d like to talk about your situation. I hope you all are keeping well!
Advice on healthy aging isn’t hard to come by these days. Words of wisdom can be found online, in magazines, and on morning talk shows, running the gamut from diet, to health care, to transportation and mobility.
But let’s face it: “growing older” is new for every one of us. None of us has done it before! And no one will navigate the aging process in exactly the same way as anyone else.
Each of us has our own unique set of priorities, values, resources, and relationships, an ever–changing web of components. The term aging well holds very different meanings for each of us. For some, keeping in good health is at the very top of the list; for others, travel and and a busy retirement are the top priorities.
My job as an advisor and eldercare navigator is to help you and your family explore all your options and make decisions that you feel will work best for you.
