RALSTON My Way announces

new Care Management service in time for the holidays

Provides assessment, planning and care coordination

 Philadelphia, Pa., November 1, 2018 – Ralston My Way announced the addition of Care Management to their list of services for older adults.

Care Management is a personalized approach to evaluating and coordinating services and connecting older adults and those who care about them to the answers, resources and support services they need. This is important at any time during the year but the need often surfaces when people have contact with those they have not seen lately.

“During the holidays, we gather with friends and relatives. As we share time with older loved ones, we may develop concerns about their wellbeing and care but are not sure what to do.  This is especially difficult for family and friends who do not live in the area since their stay here for celebrating is short. Whether you are near or far, Ralston My Way is here, ready to listen and, if needed, provide assistance,” said Eric Wilden, Director of Ralston My Way.

“We are the local champions of older adults, can make an initial visit and assessment and will be there along the way to help when needed, commented Barbara Kroberger, Ralston My Way’s Care Manager. Our goals are to provide clients with outstanding care, anticipate needs and ease anxiety by sharing information and answering questions.”

“We will continue to provide home care, small home repairs, errands and transportation, yard work and do general chores for older adults in response to their specific needs, shared Lynette Killen, Ralston’s Executive Director. Care Management is for those who need a comprehensive approach to understanding their needs and a more robust plan for living well in the community,”
