Needs Assessment Process

Our In-Home Needs Assessment

Every new client at Maplewood Home Care receives an in-home needs assessment performed by a knowledgeable and experienced professional. The assessment takes place in the home where care will occur to discuss your loved one’s individual needs and to design a personalized plan of care. Whether they could benefit from a companion caregiver who visits a few times a week for social interaction and meal preparation, or require a home health aide for assistance with bathing and personal care, or a skilled nurse to perform treatments, we will design a plan just for them.

During the assessment we will speak with you and your loved one to understand your needs and to discuss services we offer and the ways we can support your individual needs. Once the assessment is complete we will present you with a plan of care that best meets your needs. We will then identify the caregiver that has the skill set to provide care to your loved one. You can be sure our recommendations will be based on only the services you require to keep your loved ones living safely and comfortably in their own home. Because to us you are like family and we want to give you the very best care we can give.

Our assessment process includes:

  • Visiting the home to assess individual needs
  • Developing a custom designed plan of care
  • Identifying a caregiver to deliver care
