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:

Medical and Emotional Support
