Creative Care Consultants assists the older adult and their family through the self-determination process by gathering complete medical, social, and environmental information and presenting available options and choices.

Assessment

By evaluating the older person in their present environment, we can best determine their functional abilities, medical condition, mental status, family involvement and financial resources. We utilize a social services/nurse team approach to assure that all of their physical, mental, emotional and environmental needs are addressed. At Creative Care Consultants we make the wishes, values and preferred environment of the older adult part of our recommendation. We evaluate the ability to live alone and provide resources and/or referrals that enable the older adult to stay at home as long as possible.

Evaluation is conducted in the elder’s present environment and includes:

  • Activities of Daily Life
  • Medical Condition
  • Mental Status
  • Financial Resources
  • Safety

The wishes, values, and preferred environment of the elder are of utmost importance. We provide:

  • All Available Options
  • Resources for Continued Independence
  • Care Planning and Intervention

 

Care Planning

After assessing the need for short and long term care, in-home assistance, the most appropriate living situation, the financial resources available and the level of responsibility the family is able to take, we provide you with a variety of options, along with a cost analysis of each one. We inform you of all available resources, facilities and programs and help you develop a care plan that best fits your needs, while including the older adult in the decision-making process as much as possible.

Care Management

After we have worked with you to develop the best possible care plan to meet the specific needs of the older adult, we are there to assure that the care plan is put into place. Creative Care Consultants continues to monitor the individual’s health and well-being, and provide mediation when needed. We are able to assist with routine services, including bill paying, transportation needs, coordination of medical care and medical claims filing. Many out-of-town families utilize our services on an on-going basis. We are able to take on some of the responsibilities that they would have if they were available, such as escorting the older person to medical appointments, monitoring their care and helping to handle daily money management. Families are kept apprised of their loved ones’ status through written monthly care management updates.

Home Care Services

Private duty caregivers are available through our affiliated Company, Comprehensive Elder Care, Inc. Comprehensive Elder Care offers dependable, compassionate, and personalized home care services. We often make it possible for the older adult to remain at home, or in an independent or assisted living arrangement. Our insured, bonded, and well-qualified caregivers can provide a variety of services, all under the direct supervision of the Geriatric Care Managers, with 24-hour support in order to provide the best possible care in the home.
