Whether you live in you own home now and need some help remaining safe there, whether you’re in the hospital and ready to go home, or whether are in a retirement home, our Nurse Case Managers will come to you for this meeting.
How soon can I book the Free Nurse Consultation?
We can often book the meeting as soon as you’re available. If the help you require is urgent, we can conduct the consultation usually with a few hours and we can often begin services in less than 24 hours! If you are simply planning ahead or looking for non-urgent help (i.e. starting next week or next month), we can book the consultation at your convenience, either days or weeks in advance. Evening and weekend consultations are often possible.
What is discussed during the Free Nurse Consultation?
The Free Nurse Consultation can be done in English or in French. The meeting usually takes about an hour, but there are limits on how much time it takes, nor are there any extra charges for going longer. Our Nurse Case Manager will speak with you about your health concerns and home environment to create a care plan that meets your medical needs, personal preferences, and of course your monthly budget. It is important to have an open conversation with the nurse during this time so that we can truly offer a plan that is right for your needs.
During the Nurse Consultation, we will discuss the following topics:
- Your personal information and emergency contacts.
- Your medical history, current medical needs, medications and treatments.
- Your home environment to better understand your home support needs and safety.
- Your personal preferences about the care you will receive (i.e. times of day, characteristics of desired caregivers, etc.).
- Your monthly budget and the costs of the recommended or needed services.
- Possible subsidies that may be available.
- Possible start times and dates of the service.
