Every stage of life seems to have its own vocabulary. At PIECES, we understand how confusing it is to learn all the new jargon while trying to navigate a senior’s transition. Here we offer some commonly used phrases. (Don’t see one? Ask us and we’ll add it!)


Concierge – A concierge is someone who connects you with whatever you need, for whatever you need. Think of the concierge desk at a hotel, except that at PIECES, instead of hooking you up with a taxi cab or a restaurant for the night, we help you find the right assisted living facility, personal assistant, or health care specialist for your loved one.

Continuum of Care (C0C) – CoC incorporates a system that guides and tracks patients over time through a comprehensive array of health services spanning all levels and intensity of care.
