The Alliance Care Team (ACT) is a group of vetted senior-industry professionals, representing a very well-rounded segment of the support organizations that provide assistance during illness or the aging process. Started by Jamie Flesher, RN, Transition Care Coordinator, and Owner of a non-medical homecare agency, Legacy Home Care. ACT was designed to offer the benefits of a one-stop shop for resourcing transitional care needs for any age, but with a strong emphasis on the senior and boomer population.
The Alliance Care Team's mission is to provide advocacy, education and community resources to individuals and their families that are going through care transitions while promoting faith, health & wellness. The primary modes of outreach at this time are a speaker's bureau with diverse topics, traveling health fairs that they bring to over-55 communities and churches, and their Aging Well Workshops (AWW) which are held twice annually. The Alliance Care Team's Speakers Bureau is a free resource to the community. You can contact the speakers directly if you would like someone to present at your community, church, private group or organization. A short profile of speakers and their topics are also on the ACT website at www.AllianceCareTeam.org.
If you are in the process of doing long term care planning, we can help guide you through the stages of aging and what you might need to have a plan in place and to be ready for the next stage in life. We have created a Care Guide with information and resources to help you.
Be Emergency Ready
Your family member may someday have a medical emergency and need to go to a hospital Emergency Room (ER), which is also called an Emergency Department (ED).
An ER visit can be necessary but also stressful. It helps a lot to plan ahead to help you manage any emergency. This is one of the best ways you can help your family member.
We encourage you to have a personal health record prepared and keep updating it as needed so you will be ready for any emergencies.

The Conversation Project
The Conversation Project is dedicated to helping people
talk about their wishes for end-of-life care.
We know that no guide and no single conversation can
cover all the decisions that you and your family may
face. What a conversation can do is provide a shared understanding
of what matters most to you and your loved
ones. This can make it easier to make decisions when
the time comes.
