Free support for families and kupuna
Sponsored by CareSift
CareSift is a free, local support service for seniors and their families who are looking into senior care. The new service helps families navigate the multitude of options available to seniors and provides the information necessary to make informed decisions about senior care. Senior care is complex, and CareSift can help. HI Now host Kanoe Gibson spoke with Senior Advocate Mandy Ki’aha to learn more.
“We have a team of local professionals standing by to assist any seniors or families in need of long-term care options,” Ki’aha says. “We help families research care homes, foster care homes, independent, assisted living and memory care, nursing facilities, in home caregivers and even adult day care options.”
Ki’aha says CareSift also helps families research options so that they can make better informed decisions for their loved ones.
“We want to keep our kupuna safe and keep our community healthy,” she adds.
Founded in 2015 by healthcare professionals and social workers, CareSift takes a uniquely personalized approach to matching seniors with care providers. A one-stop shop for families and other caregivers looking for long-term care options for their loved ones, CareSift helps navigate the health care system by providing different care options and an extra source of support. By working one-on-one with both caregivers and seniors, CareSift helps the provider selection process and the transition to care go smoothly from first visit to final paperwork.
So why choose CareSift? Ki’aha says because it’s free support for your family.
“If you’ve ever looked into senior care, you know that it’s very complex. There is no one size fits all,” she says. “Trying to sift through these options by yourself and hope you make the right choices for your loved one is difficult, time consuming, and honestly, no longer necessary. That is why families should call us, it’s simple and best of all, free.”
