Many of our clients ultimately lose their licenses at some point. Having the car on the premises can be a source of confusion and angst. We are often asked to facilitate the marketing and sale of cars no longer in need.
Many of our clients' families live at a distance. When it's time to downsize, ECA helps with determining what is best to take, and what should be sold. We are often asked to facilitate both.
Owning a small pet of any kind is a comfort to seniors. But when they can no longer care for them, family often asks ECA to help rehome the animal.
In the current day circumstances of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Elder Care Access has more than ever taken advantage of grocery ordering and delivery services. We place orders and make deliveries to our elders daily.
Long Distance Assisted Living Placement and Relocation - ECA is there for when a loved one must move out of their home,or downsize to an appropriate new home. For families who live apart, it can be difficult to find an appropriate and trusted living situation for their loved one. ECA has helped with setting up services, researching, and interviewing assisted livings, so they can age in peace and in some cases close to their families.
Sheryl and her entire team take great pride in assuring that the last phases of your loved ones' life are peaceful, pain free, and filled with love and devotion. Having the difficult conversations early on gives a sense of relief to both the elder and family members once we've gathered all the information. It's our greatest honor to be with our clients until the end. It's not unlike Sheryl or Brenda to sit with our clients as they pass. This honor is why we are in this line of work, to make the transition to "their maker" a smooth and peaceful one.
We have grown accustomed to doing whatever it takes to make sure the elder gets what they need in order to live safely in their home. Each care plan is methodically planned with your individual needs taken into account.
