Senior couple smilingThe Senior's Professional Assistance Network's Mission is to enhance the quality of life of seniors and their families through service, consultation and advocacy. You will be treated with respect, dignity, compassion, understanding and the highest level of integrity by SPAN members. We have a deep understanding of the needs of seniors and their families. And, expert knowledge of the financial, legal and healthcare systems and programs available to seniors. Because of this, we are able to enrich senior's lives, safeguard their health, safety and quality of life.

Today there are more options for seniors than ever before. However, the paths to this support are not always clearly marked, or easy to navigate. There is much to learn and consider to ensure we make the best decisions as we age. And the decisions made can be critically important. These issues include:

Financial

How can I protect my assets? Will loutlive my finances' What programs do the state, county and federal governments offer?
Am I, or my spouse, entitled to any Veterans Benefits? Is a reverse
mortgage a good option for me? Is there a local bank that keeps the unique needs of seniors in mind?

Legal

Can I leverage trusts to help my family? Is my will up to date and eflective of my current wishes? Have I assigned Powers of Attorney for my healthcare and property? Are the proper HIPPA Releases on file? Although I am feeling fine, I need to start thinking about funeral arrangements - but I don't know where to start.

Living Situation

Am I living where I want to? What will it take for me to continue living here? Do I need to make any changes to help ensure my health and well-being? If I decide to move, what are the options available and how can I find a Realtor or placement organization that specializes in helping seniors sell their home? Who will understand my needs? What are the differences between CCRCs,assisted living, skilled care and independent housing? What if I want to stay in my home?

Insurance

Will the new healthcare reform act affect Medicare? Will Medicare or Long Term Care Insurance cover home care, assisted living and nursing home communities? Do I have the best supplemental insurance coverage?

Lifelong Learning & Activities

Where can I go to continue learning? Are there places that offer regular, enjoyable activities for seniors that I can socialize with? How can I contribute to our community and share my skills and knowledge?

Home Organizing, Modifications & Repairs

Who do I call when I need to make my home safer and more accessible? Who can I trust to help me with my normal home repairs and maintenance? How can I get myself better organized and keep my home clean and safe?

Health & Wellness

Where can I find doctors who really understand the challenges seniors face? Should I consider one of those fall alert systems? What is the best place for me to go to for medical equipment and supplies? Is there someone I can talk to who understands the psychological needs of seniors' My loved one has dementia- where can I go for information and help? I am going to need a few weeks of rehabilitation after my surgery. How do I find the best facility? My hearing and vision aren't what they used to be. Is there anything I can do about it? What is Palliative Care? Is Hospice something I should be looking at? Is it really provided at no charge--and what type of support can they provide?

Moving & Estate Organizing

Who can help me sort through everything I've accumulated. Is there anyone who can help me get organized to move into a new home? How can I sell the valuables I no longer need-but don't want to just donate?

In-Home Assistance

What services are available to me in my home? Which are paid for by Medicare or my inurance company? Where do I go if I just need a few hours of help or respite care each week. What happens if! need help every day or even around the clock? How can I get help from a nurse, physical or occupational therapist, a Certified Nurses Aid or a homemaker?
