Creating the Right Care Plan

We know families looking for care have many things to consider and want to make the right decision. Our free no-obligation Care Consultation can help you decide the best care option for your family. We provide this service because we are passionate about helping seniors age successfully. No matter what you decide, this Care Consultation can provide valuable information as you work through the needs and wishes of your loved ones and consider your options.

Our Process
How Does A Care Consult Work?

When you meet with our Care Manager - here's what you may experience:

Senior Needs Assessment

Needs Assessment

The Care Manager will ask many questions to discover where your loved one could benefit from a helping hand, along with what aspects of daily life are going just fine right now.
Review Senior Activities of Living

Review of ADLs

Next, the Care Manager will ask questions about common Activities of Daily Living such as: Bathing, dressing, cooking, and transferring in and out of chair or bed. Are they still manageable, or do they require assistance?

Identify Senior Opportunities for Support

Identify Opportunities for Support

Once the Care Manager has assessed the situation, they will explore care options the family may benefit from, based on any gaps or deficiencies noted.
Home Safety Check

Home Safety Check

A tour of the home will help identify any environmental safety concerns, such as trip hazards, lack of grab bars in wet areas, misuse of extension cords or space heaters – or any other safety concerns.
Social Assessment

Social Assessment

Next, the Care Manager will identify any physical or other risks that may be associated with the aging process.

Senior Care Coordination Plan

Latest Review from our community

I have been working with the West Hartford, CT Home Instead as a Companion Pro for six years. I have provided care for sixteen different seniors over that time. Each senior I have taken care of has had a different range of care needs. I have taken care of easier care needs like companionship, errands and cooking. I have also had seniors who needed more personal care and that could have been bathing and dressing, or also incontinence care. I have always provided my seniors with the kindness and love they so deserved. Many of my seniors had advanced stages of dementia and so many complicated emotions, but I always made sure I was caring for each person as though they were my own family and not somebody else’s.
