Hand in Hand Care
Geriatric Care Management
A geriatric (elder) care manager is a sort of "professional relative" who can help you and your family identify your individual needs and find personalized ways to meet them. Hand in Hand Care is not a generic nursing agency. We are a family owned local nursing service with specially trained professional nurses that will work with you and your family to help you find resources to make your daily life easier. We will work with you to form a long-term care plan and find the services you need to meet your individual needs.
Baby Boomers, as you are blooming into retirement many of you are realizing that you do not have the support that you may need as you enter your golden years. Perhaps you never had children or perhaps your children are distant. We can help provide the assistance you require to manage your health care needs.
While many of the elderly population live in Florida their families may live far away. With family members living far apart it makes our role as care managers especially helpful. We work "Hand In Hand" with involved parties to help coordinate services, keep families "in the loop" and ensure that needs are met.

Providing Personalized Care to Clients
At Hand in Hand Care we believe that everyone is different and everyone has different needs. We strive to provide personalized care and services to meet the needs of all of our clients and their families. Some of our aging clients have limited local family to assist them in managing their health care needs yet are still physically able to maintain their independence. We are able to help them by scheduling appointments and transportation and reminding them of the upcoming appointment. Some clients have health problems that they do not understand. Our nurses will accompany them to their doctors appointments to help answer questions during the appointment as well as interpret the information provided and answer questions to our client and their family after the appointment. Since we are local, we are able to "drop in" for well visits to ensure the clients wellbeing, provide on site assessments and help administer medications.
Our main goal is to promote the independence and the highest quality of life to our clients by working with them as well as their families to determine how to best meet the clients needs while maintaining their safety and wellbeing.
