What we do:
Perform a comprehensive assessment to determine a client's strengths and challenges. We discuss a range of issues including daily routine, self/home care, nutritional status, safety, memory, mental health, finances, insurance, health history, and more.
Develop a care plan based on the assessment and your priorities.
We make short and long-term goals together and create a plan of action. This may include:
crisis intervention, counseling and support, consumer education and advocacy
money management referrals decisions regarding appropriate housing options
assistance with relocation of the older adult
advising families on power of attorney or guardianship issues
serving as a liaison to families at a distance, making sure things are going well and alerting families to problems
Arrange services with credible providers, in order to assure that caregivers are a good "fit" and that services are performed as per a client's wishes—the little details matter!
