Wondering if LiveWell is for you? Read on. If the majority of these statements fit, you’ve found 10 Reasons to Consider LiveWell By Blakeford:
1. You want to keep your independence
Do you value being in a home filled with memories and familiar items, or visiting friends and participating in town events? If your retirement goals involve living independently in your house, neighborhood and community, LiveWell can provide the support you need to make this happen.
2. You don’t want your family or friends to have to manage your care.
Care coordination requires phone calls, paperwork and administration that you don’t want others burdened with. LiveWell provides all the support, advocacy, and coordination you’ll need.
3. You want a trusted professional to turn to in case of a change in your health.
Do you dread calling 800 numbers or sitting through and repeating your name, and birth date to strangers? LiveWell offers support, advocacy and coordination through a relationship with a Personal Care Coordinator. With LiveWell, your trusted care coordinator gets to know you and your specific goals for aging so she can better advocate for what you may need.
