A Home Assessment is a comprehensive functional status and current needs assessment based upon the injury related diagnosis and the nursing process. The home assessment includes, but is not limited to, assessment for safety issues, attendant care services, home renovations, sharing of resource information and community based services. Our nurses review medical records and conduct an onsite visit to identify the service needs of the injured individual and determine recommendations to help the individual thrive within their home environment.
In most cases, Home Assessments include an Attendant Care Assessment. Attendant Care Assessments determine the client’s current level of pre and post injury functionality to perform personal tasks such as dressing, bathing, grooming, hair care, etc. The Home Assessment report is based on the conducted assessment, which also includes recommendations to minimize functional barriers, promote client’s recovery, and allow the client to gradually return to their personal care activities. Our goal is to determine what will help restore the client to as much independent function as possible.
Home Assessments are completed by registered nurses, familiar with home care modifications. The onsite evaluation of the client’s place of residence, helps the nurse accurately assess their needs.
