Passionate Healthcare Advocacy & Wellness, LLC
My name is Melissa Swiontek and I have worked as an Occupational Therapist for 19 years in various settings with the last 14 years in home health in Portland, Oregon area treating home bound clients. I am also a Senior Home Safety Specialist (SHSS). Through these services I have found many holes in the system where an individual or family may need personal care not otherwise attainable through traditional settings. Not all of us have family members who can assist with their healthcare management, and I would love the opportunity to do this for you!
Healthcare advocates and geriatric care managers provide personalized services to you and your family as you navigate the healthcare system. Considered to be a “professional relative”, we help you identify needs and find resources to make your daily life easier. This can be especially helpful when your family members live far apart or a client does not have family to help them. As a licensed Occupational Therapist, I also strive for assisting with aging in place, safety, and fall prevention strategies.
Home safety and fall prevention is a critical first step in ensuring a senior can remain in their home setting. Discussing change can be difficult, but when the aim is to keep you safe and where you want to be, its a little easier to swallow. Medication reviews, home safety recommendations, medical equipment recommendations and training in use of the equipment are all part of our fall prevention program. Senior Home Safety Specialists are the experts in this arena!
