At IKOR of Alpharetta, we understand that life transitions can be extraordinarily challenging, both emotionally and financially.  This is true whether you are an elderly individual or couple, the children of aging parents, or the parents of a child or adult with disabilities.  Under any of these circumstances, it is important that you plan for the inevitable changes that come with aging; changes that enable you and your loved ones to maintain a fulfilling life for as long as possible.

As life care managers, our Advocates build a “Life Care Plan” based upon each client’s specific needs and wishes, in order to document and manage the client’s medical condition, financial needs, physical environment and emotional well-being.  Our sole mission is to guide and assist our clients in achieving an optimal level of wellness by coordinating all aspects of their care.
