If you’re thinking about starting home care services, a home care assessment is an essential first step. A care coordinator will meet with you and your loved one to discuss your care requirements. It can be overwhelming by the variety of senior care options available, but we are here to help. Anxiety can increase if a loved one has immediate personal care needs. However, an assessment and home care consultation can help ease any fears and questions.

Why Do You Need a Home Care Assessment?
A home care assessment is conducted with your loved one’s needs, abilities, and safety in mind, and may include the following:
- A walk-through around the home to look for safety hazards and fall risks
- A discussion about how to optimize the home for maximum safety
- Creating a care plan that outlines the schedule and services provided
A detailed care plan provides a “road map” that outlines when and how a caregiver will perform specific tasks for your loved one.
How Can You Prepare for a Home Care Assessment?
Be willing to have an honest discussion about your loved one’s abilities, safety, home environment, and care expectations. Prepare a list of questions important to you and your loved one, and keep it nearby during the assessment. Visiting care coordinators are skilled at discussing delicate personal care concerns in a dignified and respectful way. They can provide a wealth of information and resources to improve your loved one’s safety, quality of life, and well-being.
