The home health care assessment provided by TenderCare is a free, no obligation visit to help evaluate the type and frequency of home care required or preferred by a client and their family.
We start every new case with a free in-home care assessment. Whether the client is ready for care immediately, or is simply pre-registering for home care; in their time of need we can begin service with very little notice.
Purpose of our Home Health Care Assessment
One of the owners or management of TenderCare will visit the home in order to establish how TenderCare can assist clients in living independently within their own home.
No two clients are the same, and as such we will discuss the client’s daily routines, needs and preferences. In addition, we will discuss the client’s requirement of light housekeeping chores, transportation, meal preparation, personal care and any other requirements such as medication management. Any specific information with regard to medical conditions, medications, allergies or nutritional requirements will also be ascertained during this visit.
Perhaps most importantly, in our opinion, we use the in-home care assessment to get to know the clients personality and lifestyle a little. This enables us to make an excellent match between the client and their caregiver, which plays a very important role in ensuring a successful home care service.
As soon as this assessment visit has taken place, TenderCare are able to facilitate the start of home care services very quickly, or with little notice.
