WHAT WE OFFER
What we offer
As life care managers, we advocate and navigate a host of issues, facilities and services for senior clients, their family members, and other responsible parties.
A clear plan and peace of mind brought by purposeful action are merely a couple of the priceless benefits care managers offer to both individuals and families. See below for a general list of services and expertise we can provide.
Aging Optimist is different from some care managers in that we also work with an elder care collaborative of vetted experts such as a gerontologist Ph.D.; an expert in person-centered care; a fellow Masters-level gerontologist fluent in Spanish; and three registered nurses expert in memory care and complex medical cases.
Healthcare & financials
Where we serve
With homebase in Charlotte, NC, our daily primary service area includes Charlotte-Mecklenburg and all surrounding counties in the Carolinas within reasonable driving distance.
Additionally we have worked with clients as far as California and Boston, and because every job is customized based on varying constraints, client preferences and financial support, we are able and willing to get creative with logistics when the situation warrants. Some situations only require remote management, communications and scheduling; but additionally Aging Optimist schedules overnights, drives great distances and/or air travels to assist clients and their families when warranted, feasible and financially responsible.
We have also spent years fostering relationships with a large elder care collaborative of vetted experts, and are able to tap into our geographically widespread industry network to the advantage of our clients and responsible parties.
