Choices for Care Screening
A Care Coordinator provides an assessment to all potential nursing home applicants 60 years and over to discuss options for long term care. The assessment includes options of home and community based services, assistive and supportive living facilities as well as nursing facility care.
The assessment identifies needs, levels of care resource options, programs and cost for the services. If the older person chooses community based options then a care plan is developed and implemented for them. If they choose to be admitted to a facility, the Care Coordinator reviews and provides listings of appropriate facilities for their selection.
