Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
"I just need temporary assistance to get me through a surgery. Can GHSS help me with that?"
Of course! We can offer anything from housekeeping to personal care until you're back on your feet. We love success stories, and helping you regain good health and independence is a win!
"Can the concierge take me on a trip or vacation?"
Absolutely! Many seniors would venture out on an adventure if only they had a buddy to go along. We are happy to provide a travel companion if you already know where you want to go. If you don't have anything specific in mind, we can plan something based on your interests and abilities!
"My mother has health issues and sees a number of specialists. Can you accompany her to medical appointments and assist with communication, instructions, etc?"
Yes we can! Some clients only need transportation to the doctor's office, but some prefer to have someone there to listen, ask questions and take notes on any instructions or information. This is particularly helpful for people with chronic medical conditions, multiple specialists, or ongoing treatment plans such as physical rehabilitation or chemotherapy. These services are provided by a Medical Concierge, and they accompany the client to be sure that appropriate information is shared and care is coordinated among the various physicians and caregivers.
"Are the transportation services similar to Uber?"
Definitely not. The idea is that you are accompanied for your errands or outings, which means you are picked up and delivered back to your home, and in the company of a companion for all points in between!
"Can GHSS deliver me to a destination for an extended stay?"
Yes. Let's say you've been invited to visit your grandchildren for two weeks this summer, but you don't have a way to get there. With appropriate communication between all involved parties, we can arrange to deliver you to your family, and then retrieve you for the return trip home at the agreed upon time.
"My husband took care of almost everything and now I need some help understanding what's next. Can GHSS assist me with this?"
We certainly can. There's no need to be intimidated by insurance claims, hospital bills or miscellaneous business affairs. We are happy to provide resolution and advocacy services for anyone faced with paperwork, legal notices or confusing phone calls. It's tough to know who you can trust these days, and widows / widowers in particular can feel overwhelmed and vulnerable as they sort through the loose ends that come with losing a spouse. In most cases, and with your permission, we can serve as an advocate to work on your behalf toward resolution.
