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 feedback, we will ask specific questions about all aspects of activities of daily living to get the best overall picture we can over the phone. If we feel we can provide help we will recommend an in-home assessment. 

FREE In-Home Assessment for Home Care
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.  Note: For the in-home care assessment there is no cost or obligation.  Our goal is to make sure we are the right fit for your home care needs and we do this as a service to 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.
