The Senior CareManagement staff can assist in finding the best solutions for the care of a senior loved one, especially when family members live outside of the Tampa area. Often times, families are not aware of what resources are needed or what services are available in the Tampa Bay community.
A Senior CareManagement professional can help navigate the process while working with families each step of the way. The same care manager who is assigned to a family is available throughout the process. Senior CareManagement staff provides an objective frame of reference for families and establishes an important bond with senior loved ones.
WOULD YOUR FAMILY HAVE PEACE OF MIND KNOWING SOMEONE IS PROVIDING ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE TO MONITOR THE WELL-BEING OF YOUR SENIOR FAMILY MEMBER?
Senior CareManagement professionals are trained to understand and deal with the overwhelming challenges that sometimes face seniors. They will counsel and support entire families who are facing often-complicated medical, emotional, personal care and residential challenges.
A Senior CareManagement professional stays with a family to help them make decisions based on a senior loved one’s unique set of circumstances.
The Senior CareManagement staff can provide referrals for cleaning services, meal preparation, physical therapy and other types of assistance. This may include help with financial matters, accompanying a senior to a doctor’s appointment, and/or providing a report with health care recommendations after an office visit. Our professionals have specialized training to understand the fears a senior loved one may be facing. It could be a fear of losing independence, or failing mental or physical capacity.
Senior CareManagement professionals recognize that a senior’s health and living situation often change over time, and family members can benefit from expert and reassuring help to address and manage these changes. This service can be particularly important in the case of an emergency or crisis situation.
ARE YOU CONCERNED ABOUT THE RESIDENTIAL ENVIRONMENT OF YOUR SENIOR FAMILY MEMBERS?
A Senior CareManagement professional will assess the residential environment of senior family members and provide a plan of action for the family. This extensive in-home assessment will evaluate the environment, physical condition cognitive abilities and mental health of a senior loved one. If it is determined that a senior family member requires a residential move, prospective residential facilities will be recommended.
A Senior CareManagement professional will oversee all aspects of the move, from choosing a moving company and selecting pieces of furniture for the new home, to accompanying the senior on move-in day. Throughout the process, advice and support will be provided to the entire family.

ARE YOU ANXIOUS THAT A SITUATION WITH YOUR SENIOR FAMILY MEMBER MAY RESULT IN OR HAS BECOME A CRISIS SITUATION?
Senior CareManagement professionals provide support for a senior family member to ensure they are adjusting to their new home and that care is handled with the utmost respect and concern for their individual and personal needs.
Family members receive ongoing communications from the Senior CareManagement professional who works closely with the senior loved one. This is particularly important when a senior lives in the Tampa Bay area and other family members reside in another city or out-of-state.
The Senior CareManagement program specializes in geriatric care and has been developed to help prevent a family crisis. If one has occurred, a Senior CareManagement professional will work with the entire family to stabilize and manage the situation. Tampa Jewish Family Services has a dynamic full-service Counseling Department designed to assist individuals, families and couples in functioning at their highest level. Our staff of licensed clinical social workers is dedicated to helping people heal, while providing services in a confidential and comfortable environment.
