Description
Family Consultation involves an in-depth caregiver assessment, periodic reassessment, and a detailed plan of care. Caregiver assessment is a systematic process of gathering information that describes the needs of the care receiver, identified needs, and the resources and strengths of the family caregiver. The process allows our clinicians (therapists) to identify if routine follow-up is appropriate, or more intensive Case Management is necessary. The goal is to come together with the client and develop a plan of care based on the desires of the family unit. Family Consultation is provided in the home, via phone, in our office, or another mutually agreeable location.

Description
The majority of long-term care is provided by family caregivers. Although rewarding, the role is demanding and can be both physically and emotionally exhausting. To foster caregiver well-being, it is imperative that family caregivers have a break. Del Oro offers a person-centered approach to respite care, family caregivers can chose from: in-home care, adult day care, a short-term stay at an assisted living facility, or a combination of services. Family caregivers choose the days and hours that work best for their situation.
