The process begins during our first telephone call when we schedule a free in-home assessment. Our in-home assessment can be scheduled within 24 hours from our initial phone call and generally lasts about one hour.
When we meet in person, we will review the home for safety hazards, get to know you and your family’s concerns and objectives and discuss a Care Plan. The Care Plan is a comprehensive overview of client’s health history, challenges he or she may be facing, schedules that need to be maintained, activities that may be encouraged, household responsibilities and emergency contact information.
