FOR FAMILIES

FOR FAMILIES:

Senior Support Network provides the clinical staff to help support both you and your loved one(s) in coping with the changes associated with the aging process. Our professional services provide you with an unbiased opinion regarding the best form of treatment and intervention. Allow us to give you peace of mind, knowing that your loved ones are being cared for by therapists who provide the additional attention that can support a happier and healthier lifestyle.

Watching people we care about struggle with issues related to aging can be upsetting and stressful. Placement of a loved one in assisted living can be very trying for the entire family, not just for the resident. Coordinating high quality care options for seniors can be confusing and time consuming. Often caregivers put their own needs secondary and could also benefit from services provided by our clinical therapists.

Our clinicians serve as the “eyes and ears” for family members living far away or those who are unable to visit as frequently as they would like. It can be extremely comforting and beneficial to have a professional therapist on-site that you can call for support.

Senior Support Network could be the missing piece in the care you and your loved ones are receiving. If you are a family member or caregiver of an individual currently residing in an assisted living community and want to determine eligibility for services by Senior Support Network, give us a call at (732) 757-2302. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.
