Our Services

Request information about our services

The needs of the elderly are varied, and can be complex. Although many live independently well into old age, others require more attention and assistance. AgeQuest offers a combination of expertise in issues of aging and a caring approach. We provide consultation services to family members and other caregivers. Our focus is on understanding key concerns and needs, asking questions to clarify our understanding, evaluating options, and making recommendations that can serve as a starting point.  The older person can be involved at the discretion of the family. The goal is giving caregivers the information and tools they need to help. A consultation can be done just once, or on an ongoing basis as needs change.

Give us a call at 603-334-6565 or email us at nancy@agequest.com. We’d be honored to help your family navigate the sometimes choppy waters of elder care.

An Aging Life Care Manager conducts a comprehensive initial assessment

Identifying individual strengths and weaknesses is essential in order to develop a plan which maximizes independence and defines options for the senior. Over the course of 1-2 visits to your loved one’s home, AgeQuest provides a skilled and comprehensive assessment of health status, functional ability, home safety, and resources. We present a summary of the strengths and weaknesses of the current situation. Looking at family resources, we can recommend options based on your loved one’s preferences and budget. We develop a service plan in keeping with the priorities, values and preferences of the senior and key caregivers.

An Aging Life Care Manager offers support for families who coordinate care

Some families opt to manage care for their loved one themselves, once needs are identified. Our staff from AgeQuest is available to provide information, recommendations, and support on a schedule determined by the caregiver. [Yourorgname] can also provide monitoring and support to older adults living at home. This is often helpful when family members live out of town or when a guardian or conservator is responsible for overseeing the care of an individual.

An Aging Life Care Manager provides support for alternative living arrangements

If your loved one needs more assistance than can safely or affordably be provided at home, we are happy to make suggestions based on his or her needs, and on family finances. We understand the broad range of services available in the elder care continuum and can recommend local facilities most likely to result in a good fit and positive transition.

AgeQuest can also provide skilled monitoring of seniors in supportive care settings, including retirement communities, assisted living, residential care and nursing homes. This is often helpful when family members live out of town, or when a guardian or conservator is responsible for overseeing the care of an individual.
