In order to determine the needs of each client, a thorough assessment is completed. The areas assessed include a comprehensive look at all medical problems, medications, cognitive assessment, psychological and social assessment, home environment and safety assessment, and financial and legal issues. The concerns of the client and family are discussed in depth. Once the needs are determined and assessments completed, a plan of care is developed in conjunction with the family and client.
