The Assessment

At the onset of care our registered nurse will make an appointment to spend some time with the client to do an in-home needs assessment. We always suggest that a family member or friend is involved too, so that we can understand their needs and expectations. It seems to be common nowadays for clients not to have local family available. We then try to involve family members from abroad, communicating via email, Whatsapp, face time or zoom.

 

It is helpful if our clients can provide us with chronic and/or acute prescriptions as well as any medical records or results they may have, as they may help us gain valuable insight into the client’s condition, treatment, and prognosis. 

 

The clients mobility and accessibility in and out of the home, in the bathroom space, in and out of the bed and between rooms is a vital component of the assessment. Advice can then be given regarding appropriate mobility aids if need be. The Registered Nurse Assessor, can also advise on simple ways to modify areas to make care easier and safer, decrease the risk of falls and injury and keep the client living independently in their home for as long as possible.

This contains all the information you will need, a service roster and our service level agreement .
