During the initial assessment, we gain an understanding of the specific needs of each client. We utilize several methods and measurements to ensure we gauge the needed care as accurately as possible.
1. We utilize the Braden Scale to predict pressure sore risk.
2. We utilize the FRAT to assess the risk of falling.
3. We utilize the Geriatric Depression Scale.
4. We assess the safety of the home.
5. We utilize LACE to measure the risk of hospital readmission.
