Do you know an older adult that sees multiple doctors, juggles many different appointments, and instructions that sometimes conflict with one another? The closely coordinated care provided by The Team at LifeCircles helps to alleviate much of the burden that these issues can cause individuals and their family members. Aside from providing high quality health and social care, the Team at LifeCircles provides peace of mind to seniors and their care partners.

The LifeCircles Difference: Is a team of highly trained geriatric experts who assess, customize, and coordinate care to proactively meet the needs of older adults. With just one phone number to call, we’ve reduced the risks of falling through the cracks of a complex health care system. See how we make the difference in the examples below:

Common Challenge The LifeCircles Difference
Older adults often struggle to keep up prescription refills, or may loose track of when to take the right medications. We provide a pharmacist, nurse & home care coordinator to develop a system of medication delivery, set up and oversight customized to you.
Family caregivers might be overwhelmed in managing household tasks, medical appointments, nutritional needs and more for their loved one on top of managing their own personal needs. Our all-inclusive model focuses on coordinated, proactive care. The care team closely partners with the individual and their caregiver to provide peace of mind and simplifies the moving pieces of caring for a loved one with many needs.
Older adults might see several doctors, and it may seem like one doctor doesn’t know what the others are doing, leading to confusion or worse. Our team of geriatric experts meets daily to ensure all professionals are focused on what is important to you, even as your needs change. Since we authorize and coordinate all needed care, there is less opportunity for things to fall through the cracks.
Some seniors may have memory changes that lead to confusing behaviors, and stress for caregivers or spouses. Our entire team is ready to support caregivers in finding practical solutions to changing memory needs, and offering education so families know what to expect.
Living at home with out much support can lead to loneliness, isolation, unusual behavior, depression or anxiety. The team provides frequent contact and support from social workers, recreational therapists, behavior health, and more. Our day center provides an opportunity to connect with peers and develop a greater sense of purpose and meaning.
Physical therapy was coming into the home, but had to leave after a short time due to insurance time limits. After they left it has been difficult to keep up strength and mobility. Unlike other Medicare programs, our highly trained therapists can continue working with you for as long as you continue to benefit, and wish to work on your strength. Helping you maintain your strength and functioning over the long term is our goal.
