  • Does the individual need extra help at home for safety, comfort, and/or companionship?

  • Can and should the older person stay in their own home?

  • Are there some assistive devices that would make it safer for the person to manage?

  • What is the support system for the individual?

  • What are the preferred living options: For the older adult? For the caregiver?

These are just some of the key questions.  Our assessment covers physical, psychological, emotional, environment issues as well as determining the need for community resources.  The results provide answers and solutions for the older adult and the caregiver identifying what is best, safe, and appropriate.
