A care plan is a comprehensive set of instructions – developed by our Client Care Supervisors in collaboration with the client, family, guardian, etc – that outlines the parameters of care that are unique to each individual client. Before services start, we will meet our new client and family at home and have a conversation so we can understand the client’s personal care needs. Our free, comprehensive in-home assessment with the client and family allows us to understand the client on a personal level and the needs they want to be met. This in-home assessment will result in a care plan that details the tasks our caregivers will perform.
Family Resource professionals work hard to make sure your loved one is pleased with their care. The care plan may be updated or modified at any time, with consent from the client or family, in accordance with changes in health or lifestyle that may occur during the course of care. If the caregiver, senior, or family ever has any questions, supervisors are available by phone 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
Can this include help with medications?
Caregivers can assist a client with medications but cannot administer them. In other words, a caregiver cannot take medications from one labeled container to another. For instance, a caregiver cannot fill a mediset from prescription bottles, but they can remind the client to take medications as needed.
How often will I need in-home care services?
The level and frequency of in-home care services are unique and personal to every client. Services are determined during an initial assessment between the client’s family or guardian and a Family Resource Client Care Supervisor. The process begins with a phone consultation where we will learn introductory details about the client. During this call, we will schedule an in-home assessment to meet with the client and the client’s family or guardian and develop a care plan specific to the client’s unique lifestyle and care needs. During this assessment, we will determine the specifics of in-home care through direct communication with family members and/or guardians.
Client care needs may shift during the course of care. This may require updates to the care plan, which can happen at any point in time if necessary.
