A Holistic Approach to Assisted Living Placement

At CarePatrol of Fox Cities, we look at the entire picture when helping a senior find a safe and secure assisted living community that meets their needs and matches their personality. We meet face to face with our clients to understand their unique situations and to conduct our initial care discovery session. During this time, we learn about care needs and what activities they require help with, and any medical conditions that need to be considered. Our focus is not limited to the physical demands of our clients. We have meaningful conversations with your loved one to understand their interests, preferences, and anxieties during our meeting. When we place a client in an assisted living facility, we want to make sure that all their needs, emotional and social, are accounted for.

How We Help You Find the Best Community for Your Senior

How We Help Tabs - CarePatrol - panel1

It all begins with a simple phone call. Why is this call so important?

Choosing a safer senior housing option, unfortunately, cannot be made by appearance alone. What is most important is something that really can’t be seen. It is "Can this community really care for your senior?" That's why CarePatrol's advisors complete a "Care Discovery" and base our recommendations on care options that can specifically meet your individual needs and preferences.

Guided Tour of Communities

We believe in private & personalized tours. We literally walk you through the steps. You will never get a list from us and be told to “go visit them alone, or on your own.” After we’ve matched your individualized needs to safer care options in your area, we will accompany you on a tour of each one of them. Or, we will provide a virtual tour if that works better for you. You are never alone because we will be your personal care guide from start to finish.

Full Care Details & Transparent Pricing

We insist on transparency with pricing & services. We don’t like surprises either. How to pay for care is always a concern and a valid question of our clients. Another important question relates to what services are provided in a specific care option. We can help alleviate these concerns. We will inform you of private, Veterans, or other government programs that you may be eligible for.

Moving Day & Transition Support

We work with the community so you can focus on your loved one. Change can be hard, especially for Seniors. We make sure everything is in order so on moving day, everybody’s attention can be on making the transition as smooth as possible. Ensuring your questions are answered and you continue to feel good about your decision is as important as getting your senior settled in to a new environment.

When Recommending a Nursing Home Option, We Pay Special Attention to the Safety of the Facility and the Experience of Its Staff

Seniors placed in nursing home facilities are among some of the most at-risk members of our community. When a need for nursing home placement becomes apparent, seniors most likely have several other complications that add to the challenge of providing safe and effective care. As the most vulnerable group for COVID-19, this adds another layer of complexity to proper placement. CarePatrol of Fox Cities is your local expert in identifying and vetting the nursing homes in the region. We ensure that all of our recommended facilities meet the highest safety ratings and training and have taken aggressive steps to prevent COVID-19 outbreaks. We understand that these are scary times to be managing senior care, and we pledge to be your partner in exploring all the options that can help your loved one.
