One way to begin planning is to look at any illnesses, like diabetes or emphysema, that you or your spouse might have. Talk with your doctor about how these health problems could make it hard for someone to get around or take care of him- or herself in the future. If you're a caregiver for an older adult, learn how you can get them the support they need to stay in their own home.
Senior Helpers LIFE Profile
The type of care your loved one needs should be tailored to their individual situation. At Senior Helpers Scottsdale, we use a specialized data-driven assessment tool called the LIFE Profile to evaluate your loved one’s specific needs. LIFE stands for Live, Independence, Function, and Evaluation. It utilizes over 15 years of research to help identify risk factors that are preventing your senior loved one from aging well in their own home.
The profile evaluates:
- Medical condition management
- Burden of Care
- Quality of Life
With this information we will be able to develop a personalized Senior Helpers SmartCare Plan. This is an actionable plan that will help you and our team provide care that is tailored to your loved one’s specific needs. It will also help provide day-to-day direction to caregivers. The plan measures progress and adjusts as your senior’s needs change over time.
When mom and dad can no longer live alone, it is important to get support through this challenging time to make the best decision for everyone. At Senior Helpers Scottsdale we are committed to creating a personalized, actionable, and sustainable plan of care for you and your loved one. Get in touch today to begin your LIFE Assessment.
