Consultations & Counseling
Avenidas offers consultations for adult children and significant others to help clarify their concerns about their aging parents. Private counseling sessions are available for older adults who have various issues they want to work through. Avenidas Village & Avenidas members: $110/hour; Non-members: $125/hour and $20 for each additional person.
Geriatric Care Management
When families are in a crisis or need more support with their aging loved ones, they can turn to one of Avenidas' clinical social workers for a complete care management package. After an initial phone discussion, the social worker conducts an in-depth home assessment to determine cognitive abilities, housing issues, family and social support, transportation, home safety, emotional and mental health concerns. Results are summarized in a care plan that provides specific recommendations and referrals and a meeting is held to review the plan together. Families can then either implement the plan on their own, or have Avenidas Care Partners arrange for the necessary services and monitor the situation on an ongoing basis at the hourly rate.
Case Management Services
Avenidas has a special service for low-income Santa Clara County residents over the age of 60 who are frail or homebound. One of our clinically trained social workers will evaluate the situation and determine what services might be needed to remain safe at home. This is a free service for those who qualify.
