Elder Care Coordinator
Janice is a resident of Blair and lives with her husband Rick and children Olivia, Sam and Anna.
She brings almost 20 years of experience working in healthcare with the elderly and their families to the Life Care Advisors' team. As an Elder Care Coordinator, Janice helps families navigate the long-term care system, serving as a guide, encourager, resource gatherer, and advocate during the journey. Before working with Life Care Advisors, Janice practiced as an Occupational Therapist. Most of her career as an OT was spent working with the geriatric population in rural health. During her last 10 years, she was in a combined clinical and management role. These experiences gave Janice the resources and knowledge she needs to understand the challenges facing elders in the care continuum.
Rachel has been practicing in Blair for over 20 years, offering services in Estate Planning (Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney), Estate Administration (Probate), Trust Administration, Medicaid Eligibility, Long-term Care Planning and Elder Law.
She lives outside Blair with her husband Ron, and children, Cole and Carrie.
Rachel shares her expertise with the local community at speaking engagements that encourage people to learn more about elder law, estate planning and life care planning.
Attorney at Law
"Our family has used Rachel Truhlsen as an attorney for a number of years for estate planning...[and] She has been a great resource in guiding us through planning our family’s needs.
Recently our family started Elder Care services with Janice as a Care Coordinator for our mother. She was diagnosed with early stage Dementia and Alzheimer’s. Janice has been a great help in navigating through the endless doctor appointments, finding out the long term care benefits, and coordinating caregivers for our mother. Janice has been a weight lifted from our shoulders. She has a great gift in being able to communicate with our mother in a way that she has come to trust her and values her opinion when it comes to making decisions for her care and well-being.
We really value the teamwork that has been coordinated with using both of the services. They are a wonderful team to work with. We would definitely recommend both of the services to anyone with aging family."
The Johnson Family
"I have worked in the medical industry for over 20 years, most recently working with the Seniors and Families of Morton Place Senior Living and I just had to give a huge 'shout out' to your employee Janice!
Janice was so professional from the first phone call and email. The knowledge combined with her compassion for truly loving her job really shows! I wish I could clone her for the world would truly be a better place with 'angels' like her! I would not only recommend her for every job and to every family I come in contact with, but would love for her to somehow know how really good she is!
It is not every day that I give a compliment, in fact, unfortunately we do have a lot of complaints with some of our 3rd party providers referral sources, but Janice should NEVER, EVER receive a complaint…in fact she IS the best of the best! You are truly lucky to have employed such a wonderful professional...
Thank You again for Janice!"
