1000 miles of distance separated my grandmother and our family while she was getting her knee operated on. Once a successful surgery was completed, a whirlwind of decisions had to be made. Rehabilitation, skilled nursing, home health, were just the beginning. Being so far away, we felt helpless making sure she received the care she deserved.
We needed someone that could help us find the best rehabilitation facility that would suit her needs. We needed someone to go to her house and provide extra time and attention; making meals, tidying up and helping her during post-surgery. We needed someone to ensure her bathroom had the proper grab bars and safety equipment. Most importantly, we needed someone to be her advocate.
Monarch Senior Solutions is here to be your advocate. We are comprised of experts in the healthcare field to help navigate what seniors need, when they need it.
