Justice-And-Grace (JAG) Services offers support and guidance to older adults, their families, and caregivers on various aging-related issues. Each person is unique, and as a result, they have unique needs. Through consultation, assessment, care coordination, and advocacy JAG Services can help identify and address challenges to ensure the greatest degree of health, safety, independence, and quality of life for an older adult. Dr. Tracie Lux is skilled at navigating the healthcare maze and accessing necessary resources to manage anything from an immediate crisis to advance care planning options.
Dr. Tracie Lux and her care management team provide holistic aging care services with a personal touch. Our goal is to ease the burden of families struggling to make sense of the complex web of eldercare. At JAG Services, we believe in engaging the older adult to exercise their autonomy and participate in decision-making as much as possible. We see clients in the office, in their homes, at doctor's visits, the hospital, residential facilities, and other alternative locations. Aging care services are available on a case-by-case basis or as an ongoing commitment.
NOTE: JAG Services does not provide any home care services, such as personal care aides or caregivers. However, when the need for such services has been determined--JAG Services may refer clients to licensed and non-licensed providers of such home care services.
