Home assessments can help you create a forever home … increasing accessibility, safety and quality of life.
When you contact me, first and foremost, I will listen to what your situation is, and to what is important to you and your loved ones.
Once I have gotten the general “picture” of what your older loved one’s needs and goals are, then I will set up a visit so that I may provide a thorough eight-point assessment.
This assessment will address the following areas of your loved one’s life: crisis-intervention, health & disability, financial, housing, family, local resources, advocacy and legal issues.
I will then create an individualized plan of care, with your and your loved one’s input, so that I may provide services that are tailored and defined by your individual needs and values. Along the way, I will continue to monitor, evaluate, and adjust this plan of care as needed.
My goal will be to help you and your older loved one navigate the challenges of aging and make positive, informed decisions about his/her care.
My approach is to provide care that is strategic and holistic for each of my clients, with the ultimate goal being to bring you peace of mind. You will know that you are supported on the aging journey and improving the quality of life for your loved one.
What drives my services is to help each of my clients maintain as much independence as possible, and to empower my clients to have the best possible quality of life under the current circumstances.
Working with me is like having a “project manager” or “surrogate daughter” with the education, experience, and knowledge of local resources to provide an advanced level of professional support.
