How is Long Term In-Home Care Assessed?

Initially, case management from organizations outside of Homecare Powered by AUAF will visit your home. They evaluate the need/assessment for home care services called the determination of need or the DON score. Hence, the score will identify the amount of hours required to provide home care services for your loved one. Thus, case management from these outside organizations will also verify the insurance qualifications of the client. So, once home care services are approved, you will then have a Plan of Care created to meet your needs.

What is the DON Score?

The Determination of Need (DON) assesses an individual’s functional ability to perform basic and instrumental activities of daily living and identifies unmet needs. It also serves as the mechanism to develop a plan of care.

The Documentation for DON summarizes an individual’s impairments, formal supports, service arrangements, and provides instructions to the provider.

How Do You Stay Eligible for Senior Services?

Case management conduct visitations that reevaluate a client’s need for elder home care. Organizations that initially deemed your loved one in need of elder care assistance perform these visitations.
