In-Home Care Assessment & Care Plan

An in-home care assessment is a crucial process that helps determine the specific types of home care services required by an individual. Following the assessment, one of our Registered Nurses (RN’s) designs the individual Care Plan, which outlines the daily tasks for each home care client based on their unique needs. Reach out to us for a complimentary in-home care assessment.

Comprehensive Home Care Assessments and Planning

A home care assessment aims to comprehensively evaluate an individual’s needs and surroundings to establish the most suitable care plan.

After the assessment, our team collaborates with the individual and their family to determine the appropriate care type: skilled nursing, personal care, companion care, or respite care.

Expect the following areas to be covered in a standard in-home assessment:


Understand why you seek at-home care, such as accidents, surgeries, or aging-related decisions.


Identify factors influencing physical interactions and communication with the individual and other caregivers.

Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)

Determine if the person can perform daily tasks independently or requires assistance, like dressing, bathing, eating, etc.

Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs)

Assess assistance needs for medication management, shopping, traveling, and telephone use.

Medical Conditions & Allergies

Evaluate chronic or acute health conditions, recent medical stays, hearing, speech, vision, allergies, etc.

Mental/Behavior Conditions

Explore memory loss, anxiety, repetition, sleeping problems, and other behavioral conditions to optimize the living environment.


Consider any specific exercise routines or rehabilitation needs the individual might have.


Inspect safety features like bed rails, shower seats, and other assistive equipment to ensure a secure living space.

Pet Care

Addresses the care requirements of pets that provide companionship to the individual.

Tailored Support

For older individuals and people with disabilities, additional safety checks or skilled nursing evaluations might be necessary. The entire assessment process involves understanding the person’s care needs and goals. Once the assessment is finished, the next step is creating a Care Plan.
