We start with an ASSESSMENT. An assessment takes into account information gathered from family members as well as from the older adult. It includes an in-person evaluation of the older adults abilities, strengths and needs. We identify problems and offer solutions.

After gathering information from family members we go into the seniors home to evaluate the present living situation plus identify and clarify problems.

We are then able to design a long and short term care plan tailored to individual situations. Our care plan offers suggestions and solutions. We look at the overall situation considering the needs of everyone involved. These needs generally, but not always involve issues the following six areas:

Home Care Needs

We make recommendations and assist with HOME CARE:

  • Evaluate the need for home care
  • Advise the type and number of hours needed
  • Mediate for families with home care agencies
  • Screen and place private home care workers
  • Supervise private home care workers
  • Monitor agency home care workers.
