Time Allotment:

Please allow about 2 ½ hours to sit down to review information crucial in getting the “big picture”. The Comprehensive Assessment can either be completed in our office or at your home (additional fees do apply).  We will provide you with directions to our office when you schedule your appointment.  This assessment is very informal, all we ask is that you bring along some specific items (listed below), to assist you in providing us the necessary details.

The Assessment Includes:

  • Collection of medical data including current medical history, past medical history, medications, care received to date, results of recent lab work or diagnostic tests, etc.

  • An analysis of the social situation of the client: support available, alcohol / drug history, amount and type of support needed for current care, transportation issues, ability to relate to others, family dynamics, etc.

  • A financial analysis of the client’s current available income and assets (to assist in determining eligibility for financial assistance, affordability of various living arrangements, etc.)

  • Educating the client in basic insurance information

  • A review of the client’s current advanced directives

  • Defining client and family goals

  • An analysis of living arrangements. Clients are informed about available resources in the community

  • Recommendations / Care Plans are established to meet client needs

  • Referrals to needed elder law attorneys and medical professionals for complex cases
