In the world of elderly healthcare services, Aging Life Care is considered the gold standard in offering a holistic, client-centered approach to providing seniors optimal care. The Aging Life Care Association (ACLA) provides its members professional guidance, including a Code Ethics that sets the standard for the industry.
The ACLA accepts members who pass stringent guidelines. They also accept other companies as partners who meet high standards for delivery of medical care to the elderly and others with healthcare needs. Flying Angels has been an ACLA Bronze Partner since January 2019.
“The ACLA is an organization we are proud to be partners with, because they not only establish high standards for patient care, but also help members attain those standards by providing support and guidance,” said Bob Bacheler, Managing Director of Flying Angels. “Their commitment to providing the best quality care for seniors is something we at Flying Angels respect, because we make the same commitment to our clients.”
How Aging Life Care Works
The ACLA uses the Aging Life Care approach to work with families, helping them make the best decisions about healthcare for their elderly loved ones. Beyond making those choices, Aging Life Care also seeks to relieve the stress felt by family members by providing them timely, knowledgeable advice.
The ACLA accomplishes these goals by assessing the healthcare situation, monitoring it for changes, and planning and problem-solving with family members. They also support education and coaching for caregivers and advocate for patients with clinicians.
Professionals who become ACLA members typically have expertise in eight knowledge areas, all of which the association can draw on when advising families.
- Health and disability
- Financial services
- Family support
- Resource experts
- Legal services
- Crisis intervention
