Caring for aging parents and other older adults can be difficult. You may feel overwhelmed and stressed with lots of care coordination to manage. Chronic care management can help with that.
Instead of struggling to manage chronic health conditions, office visits, and medical professionals alone, you can utilize chronic care management services to help manage your responsibilities. Alanté® offers quality chronic care management solutions with many convenient features.
The Effects of Chronic Health Conditions on Family Members
Your loved one is precious to you and your family, so you wouldn’t dream of leaving them to manage their care on their own. However, chronic health issues can take a serious toll on family members.
Stress and Caregiver Burnout
One of the biggest problems among the family members of aging adults is caregiver burnout.1
Often, an unpaid family member will take over their loved one’s care when they aren’t in the hands of medical professionals. While never intending to harm their loved ones, family caregivers may lack the training and knowledge to safely care for them without exhausting themselves.
Caregiver burnout leads to many unpleasant symptoms, such as:
- Anger management problems
- Health problems
- Poor social life
- Poor relationship with the aging parent(s)
These symptoms can escalate for your loved one’s caregiver very quickly. Managing appointments, medication, and daily tasks can be too much to handle on top of other everyday responsibilities.
Strained Family Relationships
Some families experience relationship problems when it comes to caring for an aging loved one. Certain family members may feel resentful that others are not helping more. Others may feel pressured to take on too many responsibilities.
Your family deserves peace, love, and joy when you spend time together. Alanté’s chronic care management is a wonderful place to start to help organize everything for the care your loved one needs. Then you have more time to spend with your family and loved ones.
The Benefits of Chronic Care Management
Chronic care management is designed to take the stress off of the family members of aging adults. There are many moving pieces to manage, and chronic care management can keep track of things – or take care of them for you.
Virtual Healthcare: Attend Telehealth Appointments from Home
Taking your loved one to the doctor’s office is difficult, especially if they need frequent visits. This is why our chronic care management services include telehealth appointments.
With telehealth, you and your loved one can speak directly with healthcare professionals from home. These professionals are available to you 24/7, and this service is included in our chronic care management benefits.
Smooth Communication Between All Providers
Chronic health issues require visits with multiple specialists, doctors, and other healthcare professionals. Our care management platform promotes better communication between everyone on your loved one’s care team.
Each of your loved one’s inpatient, outpatient, and primary care professionals can access all of their information in one convenient location. This seamless communication can make all the difference in managing chronic health problems.
In-Home Health Visits
Our care management plans offer in-home visits when you cannot travel with your loved one. Our qualified healthcare professionals will visit your home to address your loved one’s medical needs as necessary.
In seasons of contagious illnesses, limited mobility, and other problems, these in-home visits are priceless.
