Jane and her sister live out of state. They came "home" for the holidays to visit their dad. Mom passed away two years ago. During the visit they noticed that dad seemed forgetful. He seemed to change the subject whenever he couldn't find the answer to a question from one of his daughters. Jane became concerned and hired LMR Elder Care to help the family understand the current challenges and provide options that would enable dad to age in place in the family home.

 

John is in his 60's. He retired about 4 years ago due to serious health issues as he suffers from severe Parkinson's disease. He is divorced and his only child from his second marriage is still in high school. He does not want to be a burden on his friends or his daughter so he sought out the services of LMR Elder Care a so that he could make informed plans and decisions not just regarding his current care needs, but what he may need in the future.

 

David is 91, never married, and has no children. His closest relative, an 87 year-old cousin, lives in upstate New York, which is over two hours away from his home in Northern New Jersey. He fell in his apartment and it was days before someone found him. After a lengthy hospital stay he was transferred to a sub-acute facility for rehabilitation. The facility needed help developing a safe and appropriate discharge plan and so they recommended that David hire LMR Elder Care to help him navigate the process and make informed decisions.

 

The Honorable Judge Jones had before him a petitioner for guardianship of Ms. Smith, her daughter Grace. Judge Jones did not feel comfortable making the determination without additional information. Before awarding guardianship, Judge Jones directed that Ms. Smith's court-appointed attorney engage a firm, such as LMR Elder Care, to assess Ms. Smith and provide recommendations.

 

Ellen, a retired physician, lives with Michael, her husband of 59 years. Michael has Alzheimer's disease. Ellen has three children and 5 young grandchildren who live nearby but who she rarely sees as she cannot leave Michael home alone. She doesn't want her children to be burdened with her "problems" and so she doesn't invite them over and she never asks for help. She hardly ever leaves her home except when she has to take Michael to the doctor. Ellen is extremely depressed and physically exhausted. She is experiencing symptoms of "caregiver burnout." At a recent appointment, Michael's geriatrician suggested that Ellen hire LMR Elder Care.
