The Schonberg Care Assement
We often consult with families trying to determine when home is no longer enough for mom or dad. Each situation is different, but we generally encourage families to assess the following areas:
Current Living Environment - Is it safe for your loved one to navigate independently?
Normal Ambulation - Is he / she having difficulty walking, moving around, or with falling?
Daily Living Habits - Is he / she having difficulty with routine needs such as dressing, grooming, bathing or taking medications?
Caregiver's Capacity - Is the constant care required of an elderly parent beyond the primary caregiver's physical capabilities? Has the caregiver become overwhelmed in their new role?
Social Engagement - Would ongoing activity and programming and increased social interaction and stimulation improve your loved one’s happiness and sense of well-being?
Quality of Life - Would placement outside the home result in more enjoyable visits and outings between your loved one and primary family caregiver(s)?
If your answer to any of these questions is yes, we can help. We invite you to contact us to discuss these issues with your loved one and to learn more about our community and what we are able to offer. We are happy to provide further insight and guidance regarding your loved one’s unique situation and needs.
