WHEN IS A PROGRAM LIKE LIVE OAK NEEDED?

We recommend our program when there is concern over the Older Adults ability including:

  • Emotional
  • Functional (ADLS)
  • Social/spiritual
  • Physical
  • Mental
  • Long term support in keeping client independent.

CAN WE TRY THE FACILITY OUT BEFORE WE ENROLL?

  • We invite participants for a trial run (stay for part of the day)
  • We evaluate the client to see if they are able to interact well with peers
  • We assist non-ambulatory clients to ensure they are able to stand with a little help in restrooms

As part of enrollment, we evaluate and discuss a written service agreement package, including topics such as demographics, medical issues, functional assessment, food (ADCFP), respect, transportation, annual appraisal.
