Guiding Hands for Senior Transitions offers solutions and guidance when caring for the aging population. Our goal is to offer you affordable services and resources to give you back quality time with your loved one. We can set up services to help ease the burden and worry.
We help you review your loved ones Life Plan and wishes, and identify what they need now and in the future. We will review insurance coverage, Medicare/Medicaid, POA paperwork with notarization, and talk about the best and worse case scenarios for the future. You get the peace of mind that comes from knowing your loved ones wishes and knowing you have a plan.
We regularly check in with your loved one to ensure that their Life Plan is going as they wish. We will seek for any signs of change and identify needs they may have. We will help with the communication between family members as well to ensure everyone has the same information.
The individualization Guiding Hands for Senior Transitions provides is the most important part of the journey. Everyone has their unique wishes on how they want to live life. Having the caring conversations sooner rather than later, guided by professionals in the industry, will give you the heads up and support you need.
Let us help you take the worry and guesswork out of caring for your loved ones!

After school, while most children were playing, she would go spend her afternoons at the retirement community volunteering.

She studied nursing courses and became a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator.
For years she has worked as an Executive Director for Skilled Nursing Facilities, Assisted Livings, and Hospice Houses. She has worked with the home health companies and knows what it means to care for your loved ones.
Her grandmother was her best friend and for years she would travel to her grandmothers farm to clean her house, grocery shop, take her to doctors appointments, and in the end was by her side when she took her last breath. Her passion for a dignified life for the elders is why she decided it was time to set up a service for families and loved ones to support them through each phase of their life as she has for her own grandparents.
Her goal is to prepare people for the best and worse case scenarios. When the unexpected happens, she is there for you as a resource to guide you through hospital stays, rehabilitation stays, home health services, maintaining their home, understanding Medicare and Medicaid, and anything else needed to ensure you are providing them the best life, and most importantly, quality time.

YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO THROUGH IT ALONE!!! My husband ended up in Kearney hospital last Friday and Stephanie came to our rescue. She helped us navigate through paperwork, understand doctor terminology, and she answered any questions we had. Dealing with medical issues or insurance companies this service is a MUST… and it’s not just for seniors.

I had been caring for my grandmother at my home for months. The main reason she needed me was for her medication management and kidney failure. I am a surgical tech and a medical coder for a hospital. I thought I would be able to identify when my grandmother was close to passing. When I sent Stephanie the test results of my grandmothers kidney function, she called immediately and recommended we get my grandmother on hospice. My grandmother was not showing any signs that she would be earning her wings soon. I’ll admit I was in denial, but I took Stephanie’s advice and got her on hospice services. She passed away comfortably in my home because of Stephanie’s guidance and preparing me for the inevitable.
