SeniorBridge customized in-home support
Managing a loved one's ongoing care can be difficult. Sometimes you need help from experts. Humana is proud to introduce SeniorBridge, a national provider of in-home care management and caregiving self-pay services.
SeniorBridge care managers will listen and learn about your unique needs and preferences and present a personalized "care plan" including recommended type, frequency and cost of services to help your loved ones get the care they need. SeniorBridge will then coordinate the components of the care plan you choose to move forward.
You can also work with SeniorBridge to hire in-home caregiving services to assist with meal preparation, transportation, personal care, medication reminders and taking vital signs. As circumstances change, SeniorBridge will also be there to adapt the care plan as needed.
For more information, or to schedule a free consultation, call 1-800-694-8326 or email contactus@SeniorBridge.com. To learn more, you can also visit SeniorBridge.com. You don't need to have a Humana plan to take advantage of this valuable service.
