After we speak with you, we can schedule a free consultation at your home so you can meet us, determine if and what kind of services you might benefit from, and develop an initial plan. What you need is based on your goals to help you do things that are important to you--maybe even activities that you have not been able to do, including if there is any uncertainty--the question is ---can what you want or need to do in your home be done easier? This is the question that we would be able to answer with you, whether it is for yourself or a family member/caregiver.
We are expert and professionally trained individuals who are equipped to to look at how someone moves and functions at home. We carefully look to see if and how you fit in your home by using research proven tools that address how you function, not just what equipment you need. Often a modification or piece of equipment doesn't get used correctly or effectively because where the modification was placed did not take into account the person using it and how they were using the equipment.
Research shows that considering multiple factors such as the person's ability, how they function, and how they do things in their home is what needs to be looked at to move safely and have a better quality of life. We make sure we consider the whole person and determine what the person really needs, no extra, unnecessary services or products.
No, health insurance will not pay for this; however, depending on your long term care insurance, there may be options. Our rate is $150.00 an hour and pro-rated for services less than one hour. The cost of our services are an investment in your ability to optimize your living at home, and can provide huge savings when considering the monthly costs for long term care and/or caregiver assistance hours.
It is possible a payment plan or other arrangements can be made depending on the your circumstances. If you are uncertain, please call us so we can help you determine what is possible.
Yes, absolutely--you are the customer and you decide what your goals are---you determine what you need. We are here to provide you with options and suggestions to help you reach your goals. If it is a one time visit or if you decide to get follow up visits to make sure the plan is in place and works for you---we tailor the plan to what you feel is necessary.
Our typical plan starts with a free consultation, an initial service plan which includes an assessment. Follow up visits are typical and are based entirely on what your goals are and if that involves other services and/or home modifications. We aim to make sure that we are able to achieve outcomes that meet your goals.
