Assessing the Condition of Seniors in Placentia, CA
When an older adult suffers from memory impairment, staying at home might not be an option, and the most appropriate setting for them may be a memory care community. The Way to Aging identifies the best setting for our clients by performing a comprehensive assessment. This assessment includes a mini mental state examination (MMSE), self-medication assessment, geriatric depression evaluation, fall risk assessment, activities of daily living (ADLs), and pain and skin assessments as needed. There are many important reasons to have an independent assessment before placing an older adult. It allows us to obtain an unbiased assessment, and we get a baseline to work from. You can also compare an independent assessment to a community’s assessment to make sure they’re providing the correct services and charging for them accordingly. We also take some considerations into account for memory care options, including the client’s finances, the memory care community’s reputation, their team’s longevity and training, and the services they offer. Care is a separate charge for most communities, so you need to take the higher cost of care for additional services into consideration as you or your loved one’s condition declines. You must also take into account the yearly rent increases. It’s important that the community can care for your loved one through the end of their life to avoid relocating at a later time.
