The Situation

Coping with a chronic or complex medical condition

When a health problem becomes a crisis.

Whether it’s a diagnosis of serious illness or a chronic condition that suddenly gets worse, a health challenge late in life is a profound event. It can bring grief and uncertainty, along with new responsibilities and tough questions. How will the person hold onto their independence and quality of life? How will they handle the many appointments and treatments? How can family members honor the person’s wishes and tend to their own needs without being overwhelmed? 

The Prospero solution.

While illness changes a person’s life, their story does go on. At Prospero, we’re committed to making the next chapters the best they can be. Our care teams empower people living with complex and chronic illnesses to remain at home for as long as possible. We’re here for caregivers and families as they navigate the journey from diagnosis to decision-making to plans of action. With answers and support a call away, families are better prepared to support their loved one and take care of one another at each stage.

People and their families need to know they have choices. I help them face difficult situations with understanding and peace of mind.   It is why I love this job.
