Managing healthcare decisions for a loved one is not an easy task. Whether it is choosing an assisted living facility, finding the right services for memory-impaired individuals, or interpreting insurance coverage, my 35 years of experience as a nurse have shown me that there is no one clear-cut answer for all. Every situation is different. It is my goal to help you smoothly find your way through.
Navigator 27 is a consultative division of NVNA and Hospice that assists clients and their families as they traverse the challenges of aging and care transitions.
We are here to help ensure that both you and your loved ones benefit from the support needed to live life to the fullest in the best care setting.
Whatever your personal needs and concerns, my team and I will work with you to address them. In addition to acting as a virtual support system, we can also join you on visits to assisted living and skilled nursing facilities or accompany family members to discharge planning meetings at hospitals and acute care facilities.
It all begins with a call. I look forward to helping you navigate these next steps, together.
