There are times when physical impairment, cognitive impairment, loss and change in life leaves an older person and their family wondering what to do next and where to turn. There may be more than one area of concern such as falling, confusion, trouble completing household chores and needing help paying the bills. 

Determining the extent of each problem area requires professional assessment. Maneuvering through the maze of service providers, programs and agencies that can provide support is confusing, frustrating and takes more time than most people have available to themselves.
Assessments and Reports
During a comprehensive meeting with the client and family an assessment of daily living and functioning is completed. The areas that are reviewed are

  • Cognitive skills
  • Emotional status
  • Behavior
  • Finances
  • Ability to complete daily activities such as hygiene, errands, household work and self-care
  • The living environment
  • Safety
  • Medical history
  • Level of support provided by professionals as well as family and friends
  • Social interactions and limitations

With the help of the client and family, identified goals are made for immediate as well as long term care. A full written report is prepared, reviewed and provided during the second meeting. Within the report are identified areas of strengths and needs. Recommendations for support and services are clearly identified as well as options for obtaining each recommendation through community resources.

Consultation Service generally consists of 2 visits, and are private-pay. Please contact us to discuss cost.
