A chronic illness suddenly becomes a crisis ... Mom or Dad are changing and maybe they have dementia … seniors know they are struggling and want to plan to move to assisted living … an elderly family member falls and breaks a hip … a primary caregiver can no longer manage … immediate family members live elsewhere….
Many families face a crisis as loved ones age and their needs change. At Greywave we know that finding and navigating the resources, services and information you need is difficult, time consuming and frustrating.
At Greywave, we understand what services and funding are available through government programs, community resources, and private companies. We can help you navigate all the options available and help you connect with the most appropriate companies and services. We can assess your current needs and with you, develop the most effective, affordable and practical plan to remain at home or move to a supportive living environment. We can help provide you peace of mind knowing that you have all the information you need to make the best care options for you or your loved one.
