Care Consultation

Care Consultation with a family can be helpful in determining present and future needs. Barbara will meet with families or individuals depending upon your comfort and individual requests.

A consultation includes meeting with older adults and their family members to discuss and assess:

  • Current status
  • Changes in health and independence
  • Concerns about safety
  • Clarify goals for the elder
  • Define goals of family members
  • Determine need for increased services

A family meeting typically runs 1.5 hours.

The Consultation results in providing family members with a Written Assessment & Care Plan to include:

  • Current status
  • Recommendations and referrals
  • Considerations for anticipating the future

Copies of the written care plan can be provided to each family member who may request it.

In addition, the consultation will be followed up by a phone visit two weeks after receiving and reviewing the Care Plan to answer further questions, clarify concerns and make additional recommendations or referrals.
