Are you an older adult or responsible for caring for someone who is? If so, collaborating with Andrea for case management can yield significant advantages.
Geriatric care planning and case management offers professional guidance, and is essential in promoting a person’s well-being, maintaining independence, and addressing possible challenges that can develop with aging.
Care plans are a road map for the future. They encompass diagnoses, medications, healthcare options, financial planning, advanced directives such as a Maryland MOLST Form, and environmental safety – all aspects that support the aging process.
A comprehensive approach allows for personalized care, proactive preparation, optimal health outcomes and enhanced communication among healthcare professionals, caregivers, and family members, leading to more coordinated and effective care.
Andrea will conduct a comprehensive home visit to provide a holistic and thorough assessment, incorporating the importance of a person’s overall well-being.
During the visit, Andrea will perform a physical examination, including vital signs, and gather detailed medical history. This comprehensive understanding of both current and past health conditions allows for accurate identification of needs and potential risks.
A detailed assessment of the individual’s level of functioning is conducted. By gathering this information, a personalized plan can be developed to address challenges, improve health, wellness, and overall care.
An environmental screening is also completed to identify possible safety concerns and establish an environment that is optimal and conducive for aging in place.
A customized geriatric care plan is developed, encompassing essential instructions to optimize your loved one’s well-being, promoting their comfort, safety, and overall quality of life throughout the aging journey.
Through Andrea’s expertise and attention to detail, the in-home visit encompasses a comprehensive assessment and a careful evaluation of the geriatric care plan. This ensures that the individual’s evolving needs are met, providing them with the best possible care.
