Evaluate
We do a lot of listening to understand the current situation. The core question is how can we help you? (or how can we help your Mom and/or Dad?). After listening to your assessment, we will ask specific questions about all aspects of activities of daily living to get the best overall picture we can over the phone. To help you decide whether or not there are concerns that need to be addressed, click here and take our short “Living Well at Home Assessment” worksheet. It will help you form a picture of your needs and whether some assistance in the home can help.

Assessment
A registered nurse conducts an in‐depth assessment for each client to determine what services are needed, and to identify risks in the home. The client’s daily routines, medical history, health status, memory issues, safety concerns and emotional well‐being are all considered during this process. A customized Plan of Care is developed from this information. Click here to send us an electronic Service Inquiry request for us to review before contacting you.

Plan of Care
With the information from the assessment and input from the client and loved ones, a plan of care is developed. The plan outlines tasks and a schedule for services the client will receive. Our caregiver’s first visit will begin with a review of this plan with the client, family, agency supervisor and the caregiver.

    I am now asking you to do the same for Dad and I as we grow older - when we make choices or refuse to make choices that impact you.
