One of the many services provided by Aging Care Advocates is a Comprehensive Assessment and Evaluation. Our Comprehensive Assessment and Evaluation includes obtaining psychosocial, legal and financial, medical, physical and mental functioning, and environmental information. Using a holistic approach, our Aging Life Care Professionals are able to provide an extensive report with recommendations to improve the older adult's safety and quality of life. This report can be very helpful in the event your family, or attorney needs an expert 3rd party assessment.
The comprehensive assessment and evaluation is conducted by our professional geriatric care managers in the convenience of the older adult's home or family member's home. This home visit includes an assessment and evaluation of the older adult's areas of strength and areas of need. An individualized care plan is then developed based on the in-home assessment; referrals are made to needed supportive geriatric community resources, and the coordination of these services is handled by our geriatric care managers.
Examples of supportive geriatric resources can include, but are not limited to the following: personal care services, home making services, home health services, home delivered meals, adult day care, live-in assistance, respite care services, medical equipment, transportation arrangement, escort to necessary appointments, maintenance of home, social engagement and activities, 24-hour personal emergency response systems, assisted living facilities and nursing homes, and financial management services.
