Meet the IKOR Team

At IKOR, we handle the details of life and simplify the complexities of aging and other challenges so our clients can focus on the activities they enjoy and spending time with family and friends. Our client-centered philosophy goes beyond traditional case management. Using a clinically-based approach, our Registered Nurse Advocates and Client Care Specialists identify and facilitate the delivery of essential medical, life care, and in-home care services. Our experienced life care management team can help manage the medical, financial, and personal aspects of one’s life.

Registered Nurse Advocates

Our Registered Nurse Advocates are highly experienced professionals with supervisory or management experience in the nursing field. Registered Nurse Advocates have received specialized training giving them a unique understanding of patient advocacy, and all Registered Nurse Advocates are certified to administer the MoCA, the prevailing cognitive assessment tool. They help our clients and their families navigate the complex and fragmented healthcare system.

Client Care Specialists

Our Client Care Specialists are experienced professionals who provide guidance, planning, oversight, and implementation of the plans designed to focus on our client’s important life challenges. Client Care Specialists act independently and objectively to help make decisions in the best interest of our clients.

Whether helping clients identify community-based programs & services, selecting alternative living environments, finding appraisers for antiquities and jewelry, guiding in the liquidation of assets, or obtaining quotes for home modifications, Client Care Specialists stand ready to help our clients make informed decisions.
