What our clients say…

Sam & Kyra: Family Members

“We continue to like you being there for us. You’ve done a super job.”

Mary B. Ford: Daughter

“I cannot recommend highly enough the services of Leah Cohen and her business, arrangeCARE. Through her, I was able to ensure that my father’s last years were marked with the highest quality care.”

Lanie: Daughter

“Without [arrangeCARE]’s help my mother would have continued to go downhill. She wasn’t taking her medication, was getting depressed, had isolated herself. arrangeCARE’s expertise helped bring mom back to her old self. Leah brought in professionals to help so Mom can continue to live independently at home. I am a less stressed care giver and I am making the right decisions for my mother.”

Lilian: Daughter

“My parents are very private people but have truly enjoyed having arrangeCARE around. They looked forward to seeing them as they gave my parents the peace of mind to be able to relax, and begin to get back to their normal lifestyle.”

Doris: Daughter

“[arrangeCARE] uses an extensive interview process. They met with my parents and with me to understand their personality, lifestyle, and needs to find resources that would be a good fit for us, for help with chores, errands, and personal care. This customized approach, coupled with their responsiveness and accessibility, makes all of our lives easier.”

Kelly U.: Family Member

“We had a sick family member who needed to apply for Medicaid right away — but we live 700 miles from Austin. An attorney recommended that we contact arrangeCARE to help us with this process. Our care manager worked with our family member and helped us retrieve financial documents for the application. Further, her problem-solving skills were extremely valuable and greatly appreciated.”

Natalie: Daughter

“Thanks so much to you and your colleagues for your help with my Dad for the past year and a half. We were so blessed to have Leah. She was the care manager for my father and a gift to my peace of mind. I truly appreciate everything.”

Sam S.: Son

“I live 100 miles away from my father who lives in the country. After consulting with Leah and having her assess his needs, Dad has a wonderful health care worker who she interviewed. Leah often goes to the doctor with him and calls me regularly on a schedule we have worked out. It’s great to have her as part of the team.”

Cheryl Culbertson: Owner of Elder Options of Texas

“Being in the aging industry myself I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Leah for many years and find her to be the utmost professional in her industry. Her sincere desire to help families during their most difficult times is heartfelt and genuine. Her vast knowledge as a care manager, assisting individuals and families facing a multitude of challenges today, as well as the care of people with disabilities or older adults, is extraordinary. I highly recommend Leah and her team of professionals at arrangeCARE.”

Powers of Attorney as a least restrictive alternative to Guardianship

Many factors help you determine the best course of action when you’re planning care based on age- based decline. Guardianship removes rights from incapacitated seniors aggressively, but it may be the term you’re most familiar with. If you’re uncovering challenges in planning and family care, this is not your only route.

As a caregiver, there are less restrictive options available to you in lieu of guardianship. In this blog from Grable Martin, we find some options to explore with you. As they note, “Texas courts have shown a reluctance to establish guardianships without sufficient evidence that less restrictive alternatives are inadequate to protect and provide for the needs of the incapacitated person”.
