Many families are torn between supporting their aging loved ones' desires to remain in their homes and concern for their changing needs and safety. An In-Home Needs Evaluation, conducted by a licensed clinical social worker specializing in geriatrics, will assess the overall living situation and provide for a written plan of care for necessary services to optimize and prolong well-being and independence. The In-Home Needs Evaluation reviews home and personal safety, cognition, mood, nutritional needs, areas of independence and dependence, socialization, recreation and more. It is an invaluable tool to ascertain areas of need to enable appropriate systems to be put into place to support the choice to remain at home.
