Boca Home Care Services with our sister Medicare certifies agency, Boca Home Care, are able to take care of you or an aging parent both medically and assist in keeping you safe in your own home. In working with such an elderly population – folks in their 80s, 90s and even up to 104 (thus far), we also want to help families after a loss of their loved one. Many of our clients live out of state so coordinating and managing the tasks after the funeral is also important to us. We work with a unique company, Family Transition Services and wish to inform you of their services.
Death is a scary and perhaps to some, an unseemly topic. Who among us is not going to die? Thought so. Afterall, in a way, life is a dead end. Even working in the Geriatric field, it isn’t often discussed, outside of Hospice care. We recommend Hospice care to anyone who is facing the end stage of their life. It may be the most humane, dignified approach we have to suffering and death. It is also covered by Medicare. There are three excellent Hospices in the Broward and Palm Beach county areas: Hospice by the Sea, VITAS and Hospice of Palm Beach County.
As our Blog often urges, plan ahead. Do you and your loved ones have their Medical Directives & Surrogates in place? Burial plans? Arrangements for out of state issues? The time to do so is NOW.
A new company whose owner, Arnie Brownstein, is very familiar to us, is Family Transition Services. He and his team will help a family deal with the concrete things which need to be done following a family member’s death. This is a most difficult time to have to deal with mundane bureaucratic things when you are mourning and in grief. The tasks are all the more difficult if you live out of Florida.
Some of their services include: emptying out belongings, closing accounts, real estate sales, the legal and financial paperwork, guarding against identity theft, discontinuing of services and more.
You and family may wish to do all this yourselves. It may even be helpful to you. If not, you may wish to call for a consult. As a Social Work based home care company, we continue to care about our client families and want you to know about this service which is new to South Florida.
