Vitality Caregiving Solutions
Welcome to my on-line office. My name is Mary E. Smitherman and I am a nurse, care navigator and elder care consultant. In my personal life, I am a family caregiver. My own mother has chronic illnesses that I help her manage as her caregiver. I watched my own mother lovingly take care of my grandmother. She allowed my grandmother to age in place at home instead of placing her in a nursing home. As a result of my personal and professional experiences I choose to specialize in care management, care navigation and transitional care for the elderly. I understand elder care on the personal side, the family side and the business side.
I work with long distance family caregivers caring for their loved ones who are retired executives as well as families in the sandwich generation who do not want the stress of family caregiving but WANT to see their loved one thrive in the place they know by heartâ€¦â€¦their home, on their own terms regardless of their medical diagnosis.
My clients include adult professionals seeking help for their aging loved ones, long distance family caregivers needing help to navigate the elder care and retirement living industry, assisted living facilities who need navigators to help their residents to stay in the facility longer, attorneys and guardians seeking help for their clients.
Here is why I enjoy such a fine reputation.
I am a daughter, a mom, a nurse, a fellow parishioner and a council member of the Elder Care Planning Council of Alabama. My personal and core values is popularly known as i.C.A.R.E.
