    Consultation Services

    GOOD NEWS CONSULTING, Inc. works with management teams in CCRC's, personal care / asssited living residences, skilled nursing homes and adult day service centers to revitalize their present dementia care programs by facilitating transformation into a person-centered dementia care model.

    This is accomplished utilizing the GOOD NEWS CONSULTING, Inc. CULTURE OF C.A.R.E. ™ MODEL that provides components of excellence to ensure the pyschosocial well-being of those who have dementia. The CULTURE OF C.A.R.E. ™ MODEL was developed to answer the challenge that has been brought by regulators and the culture change movement to provide excellence in dementia care.

    With a person-centered focus, the CULTURE OF C.A.R.E. ™ MODEL provides the framework for enhancing and maintaining the pyschosocial well-being of all elders with dementia regardless where they live. Being cared for by C.A.R.E. partners who are dedicated to sustaining positive relationships, people with dementia will have the opportunity to participate in their lives to the best or their ability. Evidence based principles for dementia care are used as foundational keystones in the development of GOOD NEWS CONSULTING's CULTURE OF C.A.R.E. ™ MODEL.

      Guardian of Person
      A Guardian of the Person is appointed by a court to manage the life decisions, including health matters, of an incapacitated adult. A Guardian of the Person makes decisions to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the individual.
      Guardian of Estate
      A Guardian of the Estate is appointed by a court to handle all financial affairs of a minor child or incapacitated adult. The appointed Guardian has a fiduciary duty to not mismanage the individual's money and/or other assets and to use them for the sole benefit of the individual. A Guardian of the Estate is responsible for managing the income, investments, real estate, and any other assets owned by the individual.
      Plenary Guardianship
      If the same person or entity is appointed Guardian of the Person and Guardian of the Estate, they are then known as the Plenary (full) Guardian of that individual. After the court makes a finding of incapacity, by granting Plenary Guardianship, the court virtually removes all decision making power from the individual and gives the guardian the power to exercise all legal rights and duties on behalf of that individual.

      If you are interestered in the possibility of Good News Consulting becoming the Legal Guaridian of an alleged incapicated individual, please contact us for our inquiry form.
