We start with a comprehensive assessment to find out about the needs and desires of the elderly client and their family members. We can focus on one or two concerns or assess all life management areas including medical, financial, legal, psychological, activities of daily living, homemaking, transportation, social and housing. Once the assessment has been completed, a Care Management Plan is developed to address all issues of concern and to manage tasks in any of the life management areas. Our Geriatric Care Managers can report to family members and other responsible parties as outlined in the Care Management Plan.
Our Geriatric Care Managers are available 24/7 in times of emergency. We can help the client and keep family members informed.
Based on the client’s individual needs we can help you select the right home healthcare solution. The level of care will depend on the client’s needs determined after the comprehensive assessment. Levels of care range from skilled nursing services and monitoring more complex health issues performed by Registered Nurses or Licensed Practical Nurses, to help with the activities of daily living like bathing, dressing and meal preparation performed by Certified Nursing Assistants or Home Health Aides. Others may only need the services of a homemaker or companion.
When a client needs to go to the hospital to treat an illness or have surgery we can help every step of the way. While a client is in the hospital we can visit and monitor the client’s care and report his/her progress to loved ones. We can also take care of anything at the client’s home that needs attention from cleaning, repairs and maintenance to pet sitting. After discharge, Complete Elder Care monitors the client’s transition from hospital to the rehabilitation facility where patients receive physical and occupational therapy. We will continue to monitor any transfers the patient may go through, whether it is to another rehab facility, an assisted living facility, a nursing home or home where they may continue to receive physical and occupational therapy as needed. We make sure patients understand what’s going on throughout the process. Patients may also need some assistance from a professional caregiver to assist with the activities of daily life. The patient’s family can rest assured that their loved ones are being watched whether the family is 10 or 3000 miles away.

Probate can be complicated even for small estates. The help of an attorney experienced in probate law and procedures is important, particularly if heirs or creditors challenge the will. We work with a team of experienced attorneys that can guide you through this process. Of course, we can also help you through the trying time after a loved one’s death.
Probate is the process wherein a deceased estate is processed though the oversight of the probate court. The estate is administered by the personal representative (called an executor in some states). The personal representative is named by the person making the will, and is often a family member or friend. Where there is no will, a family member or friend may petition the court to be appointed as personal representative. The personal representative will need the assistance of a probate attorney to ensure adherence to the will and applicable probate laws. The personal representative is charged with located all the deceased’s assets, transferring them to the estate, paying the bills and distributing the remaining sums to the beneficiaries as required under the will. If there is no will, assets are distributed according to Florida law.
Your probate attorney can explain the procedures and laws involved and protect your interest, the wishes of the deceased, and prepare for formal probate court proceedings.
Your probate attorney will file the will and death certificate with the probate court, notify creditors about the death and where to file a claim. He will be responsible for filing all the required notices, reports and accountings with the court.
However, if you are the personal representative, it will be your responsibility to collect the information necessary to marshal the estate assets and to pay bills, and to locate the beneficiaries and heirs. The personal representative may also be responsible for selling the house or other property to pay expenses and to distribute the proceeds. The personal representative is also responsible for paying all bills, repairs and maintaining the deceased’s home until the property is sold, or the deed transferred to the heir.
This is where Complete Elder Solutions can be helpful. If you are appointed personal representative, you may not have the time or the inclination to do all that is required. Or, you may live out of state. We can work with the attorney on your behalf and make sure all the responsibilities are taken care of as required. This could entail working with banks, brokerage companies, realtors, insurance carriers, homeowner associations, tax authorities, municipal governments, creditors and heirs.
