Worthright was founded to tackle one of the biggest challenges in aging - paying for it. After a brutal experience financing the long-term care of his mother, our CEO set out to reduce the emotional and financial stress for the millions of families who care for an aging loved one every day. In early 2020, we recognized that in order to relieve the financial strain felt by so many families, we should first help them find resources that could provide guidance, advocacy and support in the best way we knew how.
Worthright Care is a platform dedicated to helping families navigate the stressful and uncertain path of caring for their aging loved ones. Whether a family is planning in advance or navigating a crisis, we help families find local Care Managers who play the role of Quarterback - running the process with confidence and compassion.
We like to consider Care Managers like a hired relative - someone who has direct expertise in navigating the complexities of caregiving, and someone you can trust and rely on to advocate for you and your family - no matter the situation.
Aging Life Care Professional and Geriatric Care Manager are two terms to describe the same person. An Aging Life Care professional is a health and human service specialist who acts as a surrogate to guide and advocate for your loved ones. They will provide a holistic, client-centered approach to overseeing (ie: managing) the care of an aging loved one.
Relying on an Aging Life Care Professional can provide incredible comfort, security and answers at incredibly stressful and uncertain moments. An Aging Life Care Professional will act as a surrogate, quarterback and advocate guiding a family on actions and decisions that ensure the highest quality of care for their loved ones - ultimately providing one of the greatest gifts of all - reducing stress.
Most Aging Life Care Professionals provide care management services in a few areas:
Crisis Intervention: No one is prepared for a crisis happening, but ALCPs can intervene when a crisis is unfolding to help clients and their families navigate the maze of considerations and decisions around the emergency room, hospital, rehab, or nursing facility. They often serve as a local emergency contact for long-distance family members.
