The LifeLinks caring team of licensed care managers, social workers and nurses provides customized Care Management for seniors. We met the leader of the Raleigh team, Meike Wiest several years ago and we recently spent time to know more about each other and discovered we have a lot of common with practical experience in caring starting with our own families which inspired us to form the business we now lead and enjoy.

LifeLinks’ mission is to transform the aging experience from one of fear and confusion, to one of good memories and reconciliation through care management support to seniors and their care partners.

We approach each client and family with a holistic approach, considering the physical, emotional, mental, and lifestyle needs of each person involved.

This variety of perspectives is what makes our holistic, client-centered approach possible. Rely on experts so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel!

LifeLinks is also a guardianship of person provider and can either be appointed as guardian of person for individuals deemed incompetent by a court of law OR can council families re: competency related questions, the process of petitioning and possible alternatives to guardianship.

In our latest “Senior Spotlight” column for Wake Living, we delve into this topic and offer some guidance for those of you facing this situation right now.

Read our column in the Summer 2019 issue of the magazine here and let us know how we can help you!
Being Mortal by Atul Gawande
Live Life now! Don’t wait for the rainy day. Do something fun and out of your comfort zone!
In a recent TuesdayTip from Aware, Tim Murray CEO and co-founder of Aware recommended reading the book “Being Mortal” by Atul Gawande.

What was his biggest takeaway? Live Life to its fullest…. NOW!

After reading story after story from Atul about people suffering from some chronic disease or Dementia is that disease does not discriminate about age.

Things can happen in life, young or old. Age doesn’t matter. Here’s a suggestion Gina and I try to follow. Make a plan for a special event, date or staycation once a month!

Push the life needle into the red. Listen to Tim.
