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:

Relocation

We assist with RELOCATION:

  • Most older adults want to stay in their homes but there are times this is not possible and they have to move. There are many different kinds of facilities such as nursing homes, assisted living and independent living residences. Hearthside helps families to understand the difference between the various types of facilities and how these differences will impact the senior. With our help, you will be able to make the best choice for your family member. After a decision has been made we assist with the application process for entry into a facility.
  • Later, we help with packing and the logistics of the physical move.
