Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of engaging our services?
• Seniors can stay at home versus the cost of Assisted Living or a Nursing Home-currently these facility’s typical annual cost is between $50,000, for an assisted living facility, to $100,000 for a nursing home. In-home care is typically much more cost effective.
• Continuity of care management-Care and communications are coordinated between the senior, family, physicians, and other professionals and providers, preventing inappropriate or duplication of services and care.
• Quality of care-Grand Guardian strictly adheres to the National Guardianship Association’s Standards of Practice and Procedures in addition to their vigorous Ethical Standards.
