“I don’t know.” I have now said this too many times to count. My message: Be wary of those with definitive answers and complete certitude.
In our field so many people come to us and they don’t know what to do. They don’t know when Mom will be out of rehab. They don’t know how long they will need care. They don’t know how much care they will need. They don’t know if skilled nursing care might be a better solution than non-medical in-home care.
We have answers — not all the answers, but rather answers that can clarify what might be the best direction for your family.
My philosophy is simple: Move the ball forward. If we can’t help, we know people and places that can.
We never want to say we can’t help at all. We might just supply a few phone numbers to resources we know.
At the very least we will listen to your story. It is amazing how much insight can come from unabashedly letting your story come forth. Speaking honestly with us might help you make some very tough decisions. You can make them. We can help.
