Steps we take to create an individualized homecare assistance Plan of Care for every client
Step 1: Homecare Assistance Initial Assessment
Our Care Coordinator visits each client at their place of residence to evaluate condition, discuss options, and develop a Plan of Care.
Step 2: Homecare Assistance Benefit Determination
We help identify any programs, community resources, or benefits that might be available for our clients such as: Medicare/Medicaid Services, Private Health Insurance, Long Term Care Insurance, VA pensions and others.
Step 3: Homecare Assistance Development and ongoing Plan of Care
We incorporate all the orders and recommendations from your physicians, case managers, healthcare providers and our own initial assessment in order to develop an effective Plan of Care. This plan will describe all the services required, the proposed frequency, cost of each service, potential equipment and supplies needed and the possible payment sources.
- This process could start before the client is discharged from the hospital, rehab or other healthcare facility.
- We will work the attending physician, discharge planner, family and the client to determine the proper Plan of Care and agree on the specific goals to maximize the healing process.
