The older adult population living alone has the greatest likelihood of “falling through the cracks” without access to assistance when health fails. Many are placed in nursing homes for short term rehab and never leave because they do not know how to arrange for care, especially if they have no family to assist. The same relates to older adults living in the community who do not have access to advocates or trusted individuals who can advise and help them. The Care Navigator specializes in serving both of these populations and will ensure that no one ever feels “stuck” whether at a nursing home or in a private home. There are many options to ensure that a life is well lived.
