Examples of Support
The ElderLink community partnership influences the well-being of many people we serve in the community. Some examples include:
- ElderLink counseled a family who could not agree on the kind of care their mother needed. Our case manager assessed the mother's needs and enabled the children to choose the best possible caregiving solution.
- With ElderLink's help, a single woman was able to move her out-of-state grandmother to her home in Virginia, obtain a hospital bed and other necessary equipment and hire a home health aide. After her grandmother was settled in, her condition was further evaluated and adjustments made to better accommodate her needs.
- A woman unable to care for her father received our support and guidance in placing him in an affordable assisted living facility. He is still able to see his grandchildren, and his daughter is assured that his needs are being met.
