Our GPS (Guidance, Planning and Support) Services provide personalized care planning to maximize independence, safety, and well-being.
Figuring out what is right can be difficult — our program helps you make the best choices by evaluating your specific situation.
We begin with a detailed assessment of your physical and emotional health, support networks, and community resources.
Together, we will review your medications and healthcare regimen, conduct a home safety evaluation, and assess your individual needs. We then provide a detailed written care plan, as well as guidance and support to help you implement the plan. We’re here to help — call us at 908.598.5522 or read below to learn more.
