Life Coping, Inc. was founded in 1994 by Nashua physician Sidney Curelop and his wife Ellen, a registered nurse. At that time, they recognized that great winds of change were on the horizon for long term care. They understood that traditional modes of long term care, particularly nursing home care, would not be as readily embraced as it had been by previous generations.
Increasingly, Seniors Want to Remain at Home
In addition, the cost of nursing home and assisted living has become financially prohibitive for most individuals, couples and families. Depending on the facility the cost of assisted living or nursing homes can be as much as $100,000 per year. Alternatively, Life Coping regularly assists clients with staying at home for $16,000-$20,000 or less per year. Older Americans now wish to remain at home safely with cost-effective services and supports in a familiar, comfortable environment.
Case Management Helps Seniors Make Important Decisions
Life Coping, Inc. is a licensed case management agency operating throughout the state of New Hampshire. We have a long-standing partnership with the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Service, Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services.
Since 1994, Life Coping has developed into the largest independent case management agency in the state of New Hampshire. The staff, comprised of registered nurses, nurse practitioners and social workers, assists older Americans and their families in identifying needed services and finding service providers. Typically Life Coping will sit down with an individual, couple or family, and assess or identify needs. Most often the needs focus around the activities of daily living such as dressing, bathing, personal care or homemaker services that assist with meal preparation, house cleaning, maintenance and transportation. Needs can also include legal, financial or social.
