Aging In Place/Geriatric Counseling

The Aging in Place program aims to relieve some of the stress that families experience as they care for their aging parents. We work towards enhancing the lives of our aging clients while still allowing them to be as independent as possible for as long as possible. Families can feel good about the way we provide our services— with compassion, care, and sensitivity.

Once a client (adult child or elderly individual) initiates service from our program, one of our Geriatric Social Workers schedules a home visit with the aging client(s) to do a comprehensive assessment. The assessment includes the following areas:

  • Environmental Conditions and Safety

  • Activities of Daily Living (ADL's)

  • Financial Issues

  • Socialization

  • Family History & Current Relationships

  • Cognitive Functioning

  • Emotional State

  • Physical Health

  • Medication Management

  • Nutritional Status


Following the assessment phase, the social worker will create individualized Care Plan recommendations to address any areas of concern. The social worker will contact the aging client and/or the adult child(ren) to review and discuss the assessment and the Care Plan recommendations.
