When you are considering at home care for your senior loved one, it is completely normal to have many questions and concerns.

With this assessment, a care coordinator will schedule a visit to your loved one’s home to meet with you and your loved one.

Why Get a Care Consultation?

An assessment is the best way to learn about our at home care services and is completely obligation-free. It also helps our care coordinators understand the needs and preferences of your loved one, their living environment, and personality traits. With an assessment, you will have the opportunity to address your care concerns and questions and get to know the agency that will be taking care of your loved one.

Preparing for a Consultation

The most important thing you can do before your assessment is to make your loved one aware that you are considering hiring an at home care agency. This can be a sensitive issue for many seniors, and you may be met with objections. However, it is important to listen to your loved one’s concerns and let them know that their safety and well-being is your number one priority.

Be sure to make a list of any questions or concerns you may have before the consultation and think about your loved one’s care needs:

  • What time of day would they require care?
  • What tasks are difficult for them?
  • What will they need assistance with?
  • Do they need assistance with transportation?

Reviewing your financial situation is also a good idea so you know how much you can spend on care.

The Consultation

A care coordinator from our agency will schedule an appointment at your loved one’s home. If you live far away from your loved one but still wish to participate in the consultation, you can participate by phone.

During the consultation, our coordinator will discuss:

  • Personal care needs
  • Homemaking needs
  • Memory care needs
  • Emotional care needs
  • Scheduling
  • Logistics
  • Policies
  • Other specific requests

While discussing personal care needs may be embarrassing for your loved one, you can rest assured that our coordinators are respectful and specialize in putting older adults at ease. Our care assessment also come with complimentary fall-risk assessments and home safety assessments.

Care coordinators will take time to answer all the questions you may have about our caregivers, emergency procedures, safety, and more.

Post-Consultation

After the consultation, your care coordinator will use the information you provided to create a personalized care plan that is tailored to your loved one’s specific care needs and preferences. This plan will include detailed descriptions about scheduling and activities that caregivers can help your loved one with. Your coordinator will then match your loved one with a compatible caregiver based off their needs, lifestyle, and personality.

At home care services can generally begin 48 hours after the consultation, however, in rare instances, care can begin the same day as the consultation.
