The One Stop Shop
Do you need help figuring out whether your parents are still safe living at home? Do you need help finding quality, affordable in-home assistance? Do you have questions about your Medicare options? If you answered, “Yes,” to any of the above, then the Vanderbilt Family Center can assist you.
We have partnered with FiftyForward, Casler Senior Compass LLC, and the State Health Insurance Program (SHIP) to provide you with these services on campus.
Representatives will be available on Monday, Thursday, and Friday every week by appointment only.
On Mondays, a long term care benefits consultant will be available to assist you in qualifying for the Aid & Attendance benefit for veterans or surviving spouses. Funding can be used to pay for care at home, assisted living (in some cases) or nursing home.
On Thursdays, a geriatric care manager from FiftyForward will be available to discuss your concerns about the older adult in your life. The geriatric care manager will answer your specific questions. If a personalized, comprehensive needs assessment is required, they will explain the process.
On Fridays, a certified volunteer from SHIP will be able to provide free, non-biased Medicare counseling to beneficiaries and their families. Assistance is also available in finding the most cost effective prescription drug plan.
Call Stacey Bonner, Family Services Coordinator, at 936-1990 for an intake consultation and to schedule an appointment to meet with a specific agency. All services are free! Appointment required.
