Personal Care Assessment
A home care assessment is an evaluation of the client's needs and the family's concerns performed by a Registered Nurse. This can help your family better understand your loved one's current situation and plan for future needs. The assessment also includes a review of:
- Medical Information: medical history, physical abilities, and medications
- Functional Abilities: activities of daily living, such as dressing, bathing, and meal preparation
- Cognitive Function: memory and mental abilities
Case Management Assessment
A case management assessment is a medical, financial, and psycho/social evaluation conducted by a Master's level licensed social worker with experience in working with aged and disabled people. An assessment is helpful when there has been a change in behavior, social isolation, a loss of initiative, financial mistakes, threat of abuse, or frequent accidents or hospitalizations.
The result of an in-home assessment is a plan of care (a road map, if you will) for your loved one that supports his or her ongoing safety and happiness with the highest level of independence possible. You can then select ongoing services with our team to implement that plan of care.
