The founder, Shanna Huber, has been a Registered Nurse for over 22 years. She has a passion for helping others. Shanna saw a need for healthcare navigation as a floor nurse. Her heart went out to the older patient’s in the hospital who could not go home due to lack of support. Families who moved away, or were working full time, or just didn’t feel safe caring for their parents left the older adult at high risk and at times placed in a facility. Sometimes the patient came back to the hospital multiple times due to lack of understanding of home instructions or support. Shanna began case management services to help the older adult and opened Ripple Life Care Planning in 2014. She grew a business and now works with a team of knowledgeable people who also have a passion for helping others. “I just love what I do, I wake up every day and know we are going to make a difference in someone’s life, I feel so fortunate”. Shanna Huber.

Thank you all so much for all the help you are providing. Paige has been an outstanding asset and help!
Did everything they said they would do. Good company. Shanna was great.
I want you to know how much I appreciate all you do for Alice. Without you and your agency I don’t know that would become of her. You are so knowledgeable and caring and your ability to deal not only with Alice but all that was required to get her back home was amazing.
This company and the service it provides is well worth every penny. For us we couldn’t sort out what of Mom’s problems were the facility she was in, what was her, and where she should go from there. I was exhausted trying to manage all the coordination, and Mom felt her children were pushing her in a direction she didn’t want to go. Through the evaluation and recommended plan, Mom felt very involved and Shanna and her team were able to convince Mom it was the right way to go. They also helped a great deal with the logistics involved, and their knowledge of facilities and systems is invaluable. Individual families are learning everything fresh with no expertise at all. It is time consuming, scary, and frustrating. Ripple has experience in just this type thing and I think it is well worth your while to get their expert help. Yes, it may seem a little pricey – but I assure you it is NOT as expensive as the Internet says the average company charges per hour…and I think the time saved/knowledge gained well worth it. PS – watching the way they interacted with the facilities also taught me a great deal about what is effective and what is not. And sometimes facilities are convinced it is a problem patient/family…when in fact they just want care – and Shanna is able to organize and convey that.
My father passed away about a year ago and we were suddenly responsible for my mother’s care. After a few months of attempting to sort through mountains of paperwork and attending regular doctor visits we were lucky enough to find Ripple Life Care Planning. They sent someone out to meet with my Mom for a couple hours to put together a comprehensive list of her medical conditions, medications and take a thorough assessment of her needs. Then they met with my wife, my mother and I to review a report they created. This report outlined everything, which really organized her conditions and needs. For the first time this made the task at hand seem manageable and the report included suggestions and resources we could use that we didn’t even know existed. It prepared us for the next doctor visits to be an educated participant rather than just a spectator. At the next doctors visit we were able to bring up some dizziness issues, digestive concerns and discuss some specific medications she was taking that in combination with other medicines might be causing some of these problems. My Mom was able to go from taking 16 medications per day to 7 and within days she was more stable, coherent and her stomach pains were significantly better. Additionally the report included other recommendations that made my mom’s quality of life better and made our responsibilities much more manageable. It has been a God sent that we found Shanna and her team of professionals. I would highly recommend their service and I only wish we would have found them sooner
Caring for mom became a little stressful. I live a little over an hour away and my roots are too deep to pick up and move home. When I hired these guys to come in and take over they did just that! All of her doctors are in 1 coordinated effort and she’s safe and sound at home where she wants to be. Truly grateful for these guys!
Ripple Life Care Planning was able to provide detailed directions and steps regarding my father. We were able to stop the numerous hospital visits and he is better now than he has been in years. I should have contacted them long ago. I no longer have to worry when the phone rings.
Since you’ve been working with my mom, she’s like she was 10 years ago.
