Other Ways PSA Can Help

At Personal Senior Advocates, we are dedicated to assist you in whatever situation you may be dealing with.  When necessary, we are able to work with you and identify vetted professionals to assist you in areas that are outside of our normal scope of services.

As trained, seasoned, Advocates we can serve as the perfect point person when you or your family member are dealing with a situation that requires assistance.  There are countless situations you may find yourself in when you are aging alone or have an aging parent.  Having a relationship with an advocate that is familiar with your situation and able to provide options can make all the difference.  Many times we are too close to the problem and can’t see the solution or don’t know what options are available. With an Advocate, what seems like an impossible situation is manageable and we will work with you to create a list of possible solutions.

A health crisis of an aging parent can present an unexpected twist of events.  At a time when emotions run high, unresolved family issues are not uncommon.

We have successfully assisted families with complex issues ranging from difficult family dynamics to legal document reviews and family disputes.  When appropriate, we will provide a list of vetted service professionals such as a licensed Fiduciary, Mediator, or Attorney that will provide additional services to relieve the tension associated with these areas to allow the focus to be the wellbeing/ recovery of your family member.
