What Does a Personal Assessment Entail?
Integrity Senior Placement’s personal assessments are conducted by David, our placement specialist. David is a former case manager in long-term care, assisted living, hospice, and memory care in and around Phoenix. As such, he has a wealth of experience in conducing personal assessments with seniors to determine their psycho-social needs, overall health, and unique circumstances. During the personal assessment, David will ask you or your loved one a series of questions about topics such as:
Are there any illnesses or conditions that we should be aware of? What level of medical care will your loved one need to stay healthy and happy? Senior placements in Phoenix range from independent living communities with limited on-site medical care, to inpatient facilities with round-the-clock nursing.
Mental & Behavioral Health:
Does your loved one have any mental health concerns that require special support? Is he or she experiencing memory loss, depression, anxiety, or behavioral disruptions as a result of advancing dementia? David will find a Phoenix area placement that accommodates your loved one’s mental and behavioral health needs, so that they can thrive in their new home.
It is important that whatever placement you choose is safe and secure. David will assess how much supervision your loved one needs to prevent falls and other incidents that could cause harm. Integrity Senior Placement works with facilities that offer minimal supervision for independent seniors, as well as facilities that offer 24/7 support for those that require significant care.
Assistance with Daily Living:
During the personal assessment, David will also determine how much assistance your loved one needs during various activities of daily living, including feeding, bathing, toileting, and basic housekeeping. Integrity Senior Placement will find a Phoenix area facility that provides as much or as little support required to live life to the fullest.
