Just make one call to Schmieding Aging Services and you'll get the expert help you're looking for. We’ll provide you with free information, referrals, and consultation.
Our initial services are free to the community. Schmieding Aging Services is a community service designed to help families and older adults connect with the community resources, education, and services they need to stay at home safely, to experience healthy aging, to reduce caregiver stress, and to improve their quality of life.
We will provide helpful information and education based on your personal situation. This information may include our Guide to NWA Aging Resources, a directory of caregivers trained in the Schmieding Method of home caregiving and additional information tailored to your specific needs.
When you need specific services, such as applying for Medicaid, medication programs, in-home care programs, suitable housing options, and other specialized assistance, we will make appropriate referrals to organizations and resources offering the services you need.
It is often helpful to have an in-office consultation with our licensed social worker. The social worker will offer suggestions and recommendations based upon your needs. Suggestions and recommendations may include referrals to geriatric medical specialists, cognitive testing, general education materials, the hiring of trained home caregivers, and more.
