Assessment

We use a modified version of the interRAI Assessment tool, along with input from our client and their family members, for a comprehensive assessment of home care needs. The original tool was developed by a panel of geriatric specialists and is widely used across Canada and around the world. While the tool provides a framework, we have modified it to take into account the preference of our client and reflect the experience and judgment of our caregivers.
Please call us at (403) 990 3837 for a one on one consultation and assessment. Consultations are at an hourly rate. You may also find the brief self-assessment below helpful.
