Chelsea Jewish Aging Life Care

A Plan for Helping Seniors and their Families

There is a growing demand for Aging Life Care™ services due to the many complex issues and challenges facing individuals today as they age. The Chelsea Jewish Aging Life Care program helps seniors and their families explore the different types of support services before, during or after a crisis occurs. Our primary goal: to help elders live well while they age.

An Aging Life Care Professional acts as a guide, advocate and resource for families caring for older relatives. Also known as a geriatric care manager, an Aging Life Care Professional is a health and human service specialist who strives to create a special relationship with seniors and their families.

Personalized Care Management: Better Quality of Life

Aging Life Care Professionals at the Chelsea Jewish Lifecare are available to complete a thorough assessment of an older adult’s current level of functioning and examine his/her support systems and resources. Additionally, we can support the older adult and loved ones during all phases of decision-making. An added plus: we help navigate through the maze of local and state resources. Our Aging Life Care Professionals bring families together to discuss options, and most importantly, help our clients attain their maximum functional potential.

Chelsea Jewish Aging Life Care Professionals are all licensed clinical social workers who are members of the Aging Life Care Association. We have extensive knowledge about resources within our community as well as the quality and costs of such services.

An Aging Life Care Professional will listen to the concerns of seniors and their families, visit the home, evaluate needs and recommend options. Alternate care options are explored and decisions are made regarding the need for placement or changes in the home environment.

  • Conducting care-planning assessments
  • Providing short or long-term eldercare assistance for those engaged in local or long distance caregiving
  • Developing comprehensive individualized plans
