Got senior care FAQs? We have answers
I'm here to help you navigate aging
Aging comes with many questions, my role is to help answer some along the way.
When you partner with Caren Lee Cares you don’t travel the path alone, you walk it with a trusted companion. I can help you weigh your options and make decisions you feel comfortable with.
I will not take over your seniors care or change your developed plan. My purpose is to advocate, guide, and support you and your loved one. Navigating the healthcare system is complicated and expensive. I want to lend my expertise to help you manage all the appointments, medications, and processes, so you don’t have to do it alone. Working with a professional who has experience in the industry and can help explain how it all works will ultimately save you time and money. When you work with me, you will know the right care plan is in place for your senior, providing you peace of mind.
To start, I will conduct three health assessments to understand the current care plan, medications, needs, and long-term goals. Based on those, I will recommend a care plan with specific action steps. The care plan can include: attending medical appointments, advocating care, explaining procedures, signing up for services like Access-A-Ride, social security, or do wellness checks.
I am your partner in this journey and am transparent in my process. I will not recommend a care plan I do not 100% agree with. I am open to adding or removing options you do not feel comfortable with.

I pride myself on the advice and care I provide to my clients. I maintain strict confidentiality while strategically opening the lines of communication and trust within the family circle, especially during stressful and difficult times of decision or change. I am professionally trained and ready to provide my expertise to your family.
