Older adults and/or physically frail adults and their families are often faced with difficult decisions regarding lifestyle changes. Such decisions can involve medical care, housing, financial concerns and/or caregiving. Many families also face issues relating to depression, grief/loss, anxiety and adjustment. Significant challenges can arise for older adults and family members dealing with dementia.
Mareck Family & Geriatric Services has been working with families for over 16 years. We partner with families and physicians to bring the best care possible to you and your family by providing insight, education and assistance. Our services include counseling, assessments and care management wherever you need us: in your home, in our office or even in a senior living community. Please feel free to call us anytime with questions or concerns. We are here for you.
We are able to bill Medicare and most other insurances for counseling services. Care planning assessments, family meetings and care management are not covered by insurance. Please feel free to contact us with questions regarding fees and insurance. We are happy to help you in any way possible. We find that, although insurance does not cover some services, these services are still very beneficial to our families (especially for those with family out-of-town).
We believe that the more you know, the better prepared you will be for an upcoming lifestyle change or sudden illness or even death of a loved one. Therefore, we have provided the following educational materials for you and your family as links. As always, it is best to consult a professional when making life decisions, we hope these materials help you as you prepare to speak with a health, legal or mental health professional.
