Innovations Brings Premier Advocacy Services to a National Audience
Lifecare Innovations, Inc., a leading Chicago-area provider of services for individuals needing assistance in managing day-to-day life, has partnered with a national entity and is taking its unique model to a nationwide audience.
Offices will be opened in select cities across the country. The first of these will be in Lake County, Illinois, and will be dedicated specifically to serving the northern suburbs of Chicago.
National expansion is reflective of the company’s notable growth and success over the past 15 years. The new offices will be fully staffed by clinical professionals who deliver expert services to clients of all ages.
“We’re really excited about the opportunity to expand and support clients and their families across the country. It has always been my goal to take this model to other cities, “ said Shay Jacobson, Founder and President of Lifecare Innovations, “and this year it will become a reality.”
Lifecare Innovations offers Lifecare Management, Guardianship, Life Care Planning, Caregiver and Property services to those coping with age-related issues, psychiatric impairments, brain injury and developmental disabilities. The current staff of 25 clinicians is field based and serves clients in a variety of locations and settings, including nursing homes, assisted living facilities and private residences in the community.
Life Care Planning for individuals who have suffered traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries is one of the key areas spurring the company’s growth, and a field of expertise much relied upon by insurance companies, law firms and other entities involved in litigating settlements related to these devastating injuries.
Lifecare Innovations, widely known as the preferred company for difficult, complex cases, is also dedicated to education and licensed to offer Continuing Education Units to nurses, social workers and nursing home administrators throughout the Chicago area.
The company was founded in 1999 and is presently based in Burr Ridge, Illinois. Shay Jacobson, RN MA NMG LNCC, remains at the helm today. The company was awarded the prestigious Better Business Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics in 2008 and more recently, an Annual Award for Business Excellence from the Daily Herald Business Ledger.
Ms. Jacobson was also individually awarded the National Master Guardian Star Achievement Award in 2013. One of the highest honors bestowed by the Center for Guardianship Certification (CGC), the award recognizes the person’s exemplary work as a CGC National Master Guardian and demonstrated knowledge of advanced guardianship concepts, ethics and issues.
