Working with Aging With Dignity begins with a single phone call. Here’s how we help:

Initial phone consultation
During this conversation, we’ll focus on specific challenges your loved one is facing, your concerns and what you’re looking for in the way of support.

In-home assessment
Next, we’ll perform a comprehensive assessment of your loved one’s current living situation and health concerns.

Make recommendations
Based on our assessment, we’ll make recommendations for your loved one to address their specific issues and concerns and develop a care plan that will provide solutions to those issues.

Administer and Monitor
Once a care plan has been approved, we’ll help administer the plan and monitor its progress.
