About Us

Senior Care Management Partners, LLC is focused on improving the health and quality of life for older adults and their loved ones.
We develop a partnership team with each of our clients, thus the origin of our practice name, Senior Care Management Partners.

Each of our clients and their unique needs and desired goals are at the center of each of our partnerships.

During the first few months of the COVID Pandemic, our founder felt a growing need to advocate for the highest quality healthcare and community resources, to support older and disabled adults in meeting their healthcare and aging in place needs.  Thus, the development of Senior Care Management Partners, LLC in the fall of 2020.

Our Founder

Our founder and Aging Life Care Manager, Sue Wiesenberg, has been focused on improving the health and quality of life for older and disabled adults for her entire 36 year professional career.  She is passionate about celebrating the individuality of all persons, and that passion drives her holistic client assessments and client-centered development of care plans to reach each client’s unique goals.

Sue is a Dementia Certified Specialist and a licensed Physical Therapist in Delaware and Pennsylvania.  Prior to starting her Senior Care Management practice, she worked as a Director of Clinical Operations and a Clinical Manager for a large home health organization, supporting and mentoring nurses, therapists, home health aides, social workers, and registered dieticians.  Earlier in her career, Sue worked as a Physical Therapist with older and differently-abled adults, in addition to providing consultative services to a variety of home health, hospice, assisted living, nursing home, and group home organizations in DE and PA, with a focus on quality improvement and education.   

Sue lives in Lewes, DE with her husband Paul and Havanese pup Maya.  Paul can sometimes be found volunteering to assist Sue’ s clients on the weekends, with weeding their gardens and moving their furniture, while Maya occasionally accompanies Sue to visit her dog-loving clients just to get those smiles and canine “massages”!   Paul and Sue’s two talented and fun-loving adult sons and their awesome partners live in Pennsylvania and Michigan.

Sue enjoys spending her free time with family and friends, kayaking, camping, dancing, and supporting others in any way possible!

What is an Aging Life Care™ Manager?

An Aging Life Care Manager is dedicated to helping clients age well while also supporting quality of life for family members. This phase of a family’s journey together is often complicated. There is more to do than there is time. Relatives may live far away. Relations can become strained.

Our professional training and knowledge of best practices can ease the journey.

Every family is unique. As Aging Life Care Managers, we apply our insights and skills in 8 key areas to provide you with a positive care plan tailored to your family’s individual needs and strengths.

We offer expertise regarding:

  • Health and disability: Through assessments and experience, we can help you understand what your loved one does well, and in what areas he or she could use additional help.
  • Finances: A review of the current monetary situation will result in a plan to make resources stretch as efficiently as possibly while maintaining the desired level of comfort, dignity and safety.
  • Housing: Based on the assessments, recommendations can be made for optimal living situations now, with a view to likely changes in the foreseeable future.
  • Family: Sibling disagreements and old family history often make the aging journey difficult. Our training provides for skilled facilitation of family meetings and creation of a plan that takes everyone’s needs into account.
  • Local Resources: There are programs available to help, but it’s difficult to know which one is the most appropriate for your situation. Save time and money by letting us objectively evaluate the situation and connect you to the resources best suited to your needs.
  • Advocacy: Our comprehensive knowledge of the disjointed health care system allows us to monitor quality and lobby for the care and treatment your family wants.
  • Legal: Let us help you identify issues and get key paperwork in order.
  • Crisis Intervention: The unexpected is simply a fact of life in aging. We are experienced with elder emergencies and are ready to jump in at a moment’s notice.

Senior Care Management Partners is in the business of helping aging adults and their families to live well throughout the aging process. Give us a call at 302-200-9719 to discuss the many ways we can help you.

How we are different

What makes an Aging Life Care Manager stand apart from the others is the commitment to stay focused on the needs of the client and family. Others may offer services for less, but what you receive cannot help but be influenced by the payment structure.

Hospital- or insurance-based case managers are employees of the health care system. They are good professionals. Their focus, however, is to address the issues of patients within the institution and to make efficient use of services for their organization.

We are based in the community and work with aging adults wherever they live. We provide continuity of care across all settings. We include the family and focus on improving quality of life for the older adult and their grown children.

Senior advisors are paid referral fees to suggest elder care facilities. As a general rule, they have a more limited sphere of knowledge and do not hold a professional degree needed to give them expertise in the 8 key areas of elder care. Only those facilities willing to pay a finder’s fee will be included in their list of suggestions. There may be a more appropriate option, but it will not be mentioned if the facility does not pay for referrals.

Because we are paid directly by you, we are independent and objective. Our focus is 100% on the needs of your family and your aging loved ones. We apply our considerable skill and years of training to your unique situation.

When the issue is safety and quality of life, you deserve the best!
