Assistance for You

Kathleen Ackermann

Remain independent at home….or ask me to help you find a Senior Living Home that is right for you. There are many Senior/ Assisted living communities to choose from.
Why not let me take the stress and confusion out of exploring the many ways you can age gracefully either at home or in a community that accommodates you specific needs.

Mission Statement

“Assistance for You” is an organization dedicated to helping Seniors and their families find solutions to aging safely and comfortably. We familiarize our clients regarding different options in the Coachella Valley and assist in choosing which ones might best suit them. We educate seniors and their families respecting various alternatives of care and assist the family weighing the advantage of remaining at home versus Assisted Living Community keeping the safety and
comfort of their loved one uppermost in mind.

“Assistance for You” has been designed to meet all a senior’s care needs and we have the means to help meet those needs. In addition to the services we provide personally, we help with referrals to the many other resources available in Coachella Valley.

Vision Statement

Community and facility tours and home care set up can be arranged and coordinated by “Assistance for You”. Our services include scheduling, advocating, transportation to Doctors appointments and medication systematization. We’re well versed in Long Term Care Insurance and can help determine exactly what benefits are available and to what extent Medicare can offset health costs. Take advantage of a complementary assessments and achieve a complete understanding of the differences between Home Care and Home Healthcare, what “level of care” means and how it’s determined, and begin the process of determining the best course of action for yourself and your family!
