The phone rings in the middle of the night… We’ve all been there and we all know alarming news awaits on the other end of the line. Whether it’s one major crisis or a growing number of catastrophes, as our elder population continues to increase so do our caregiving responsibilities. But are you prepared for that phone call regarding your aging loved one? Amy Genson Guss of 805Aging can help alleviate some of that panic by providing hands-on assistance, stress relief and practical elder care strategies to families in crisis, as well as to those who simply recognize the need for expert geriatric care management.
Elder care encompasses a variety of tasks ranging from, but no limited to, managing medications or talking to doctors; helping with bathing or dressing; or taking care of household chores, meals, or bills for someone who cannot do these things alone.
It’s highly documented that our society is aging. With our growing aging population come mounting concerns and responsibilities for family members.
- How do we keep Mom safely and independently at home?
- Who will oversee Dad’s care now that Mom has passed?
- How do I manage my parents’ care while juggling a full time career and kids of my own?
Overseeing an aging parent’s care is challenging and time-consuming, especially when one is not tapped into all of the available resources. At 805Aging, we are not only specialists in the field of aging, but Conejo Valley residents and community advocates as well. Amy Genson Guss is a professional gerontologist with both Bachelors and Masters degrees from the Davis School of Gerontology at USC. Amy has combined her 20+ years of experience in elder care with her community-based knowledge in order to meet the needs of your aging family member.
Together we create a customized care plan to ensure that your loved one is safe, well cared for and not isolated. 805Aging provides you with an extra set of eyes and ears so that you – the caregiver – have peace of mind.
At 805Aging we are aware of the stress and worry that accompanies caring for your loved one. Distance, career and a family of your own often impact your time and ability to provide and research care options. 805Aging is dedicated to enriching the lives of our community based older adults. We can ease many of the challenges associated with elder care, allowing you to be family – not caregiver.
