Janet’s story*

Janet and her husband needed a new roof and other small repairs done at their home. Many building contractors didn’t return her calls. Those that did were very expensive. Janet’s Resources For Living consultant helped her find a high-rated roofing company in her area at a decent price. She felt better knowing they wouldn’t be taken advantage of.

Eric’s story*

When his father left the hospital, Eric knew there was much to do to make his father’s home safe. Eric called Resources For Living. His life consultant explained home medical equipment his father might need. He also got referrals to local home medical suppliers and transportation services. Eric was nervous about being his father’s caregiver. But he felt better knowing his dad was getting the right care.

Resources For Living is just one of the health advocacy and wellness programs we have for members of the Aetna Medicare Advantage plan. All at no additional cost.
