Caring for aging seniors can be a rewarding yet challenging experience. The strain placed on relationships, family and work can become overwhelming as you try to balance your daily routine with the complexities of caring for an aging loved one.
At Fairview Health Services, we have a special appreciation for the caregiving journey. With over 100 years spent caring for seniors and their family caregivers, we understand the importance of caring for yourself so you can continue to care for others.
That’s why we’ve created Caregiver Assurance™—a membership program that combines telephonic, in-person, and online resources to make your caregiving journey easier. We provide emotional, educational, and advisory services to help you maintain your own well-being as you care for your loved one and help him or her live a fulfilling and independent life.
We also offer an optional in-home evaluation where you and your loved one will meet face-to-face with a Caregiver Advisor so we best understand your concerns and needs. By speaking with you, we can learn more about your senior’s daily routines and offer suggestions to help you both feel confident and comforted while your senior remains living independently.
A: As a Caregiver Assurance member, you can rest assured you’ll have the support you need when and where you need it. The Caregiver Assurance membership provides you with access to Fairview’s network of providers and resources—a trusted brand in your community—to help aide in your guidance and assistance. Additionally, the membership gives you access to a personal Caregiver Advisor that knows you and knows your situation and can help guide you through this journey. Lastly, the Caregiver Assurance membership gives you access to a myAssurance portal where you can communicate with your advisor, retrieve important educational documentation, and access resources to assist in supporting you and your senior.
A: Your Caregiver Advisor is “there for you because you are there for them.” That means that whenever you need to speak to someone, give your advisor a call. There is no maximum or minimum number of times you may contact your advisor.
A: No. You are guaranteed your Caregiver Assurance membership rate. You can expect to be charged $50 a month for this service as long as you’re a member, regardless of the number of times you contact your Caregiver Advisor.
A: No. Caregiver Assurance is private pay. Typically insurance covers only those services which are deemed “medically necessary.” Because you are paying out-of-pocket, we have made the monthly fee affordable. We recognize many services charge much higher rates for caregiver support services, and oftentimes those fees are charged hourly, in 15 minute increments. This membership is affordable at only $50/month.
A: No problem! We’re here to help. The transition of a senior’s living situation—especially from independent living to a housing community—can be a complicated one. Let us guide you through this transition and assist with providing you not only with the resources you need, but the emotional support also.
A: You may call at any time. If your Caregiver Advisor is away or busy, you can leave a message and expect a call back within 2 business days.
A: Select the “Get Started” button at the top of the Caregiver Assurance web page. This will take you to a short questionnaire where you’ll be asked a series of questions about your current situation. This information will guide you to the Caregiver Assurance service(s) that best meet your needs. You’ll then proceed to the check-out and as soon as your payment is processed, you’ll receive an email from your Caregiver Advisor, welcoming you as a new member. Your Caregiver Assurance membership and dedicated support begins immediately.
