Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment
The most requested service, The Home Care Assessment, is the single most important tool in a care managers tool box. The geriatric home care assessment aids in the diagnosis of medical conditions; development of treatment and follow-up plans; coordination of management of care; and evaluation of long-term care needs and optimal placement.
The geriatric assessment differs from a standard medical evaluation by including non-medical domains; by emphasizing functional capacity and quality of life. It usually yields a more complete and relevant list of medical problems, functional problems, and psycho-social issues. The home care assessment findings are used to develop an individualized care plan.
“I’ve referred several of my friends to Bridget for assistance with their elderly parents. They couldn’t thank me enough for the referral. Prior to their Careplan meeting they were not aware of any service providers that provide this kind of service. In each situation, my friends received the right amount of support their unique situations required. They couldn’t be happier. They’ve gone on to recommend Careplan to their family and friends.”
