Learn more about risk assessment for elderly care.

We collaborate closely with licensed professionals in aged care who utilise the specialised risk assessment tool, to identify potential hazards and develop preventive strategies for you. Our goal is to assist you in minimising hazards that could impact your quality of life.

When to consider a hazard evaluation.

If you or a loved one experience mobility limitations, cognitive changes, or safety incidents that signal greater susceptibility to harm, we encourage reaching out for an evaluation with a professional risk assessment tool. Signs may include falls, confusion in remembering medical treatment plans, inability to maintain personal hygiene/nutrition, or unsafe behaviours like wandering from home. Your Care Manager will ensure this requirement is monitored in your customised Care Plan.

After signing up with Let’s Get Care, your Care Manager will develop a Care Plan that highlights an assessed need for an evaluation of any potential hazards or issues you may experience. We will support you with access to a professional assessor who can provide safety recommendations, training on hazardous behaviours, assistive equipment, and other relevant information. Your Care Manager will then update your Care Plan based on this information with any additional support you may need.

Scheduling a safety check.

To schedule a safety check with a risk assessment tool your Care Manager will provide you with access to a list of professionals. You’ll be able to schedule in the assessment at a time that suits both you and your loved ones.

How health professionals work with you.

When undergoing an assessment using the risk assessment tool, professionals will take the time to understand your lifestyle, daily activities, and physical considerations to identify safety vulnerabilities.

It is a thorough inspection of the home environment, conducted by a specially trained assessor, to identify safety hazards and areas of vulnerability for older people receiving home care. This home safety assessment examines places the client frequents, their abilities and physical challenges, medication usage, eating and hygiene patterns, cognitive issues, social support network, and emergency systems. The assessor may also discuss lifestyle, nutrition, and medical status with the client/caregivers to gain greater context. They analyse all risks and make recommendations.

It helps prevent accidents and emergencies by identifying hazards, vulnerabilities and areas of concern early on. Using a comprehensive risk assessment tool that examines physiological conditions, abilities, home safety, medications, mobility limitations, and other factors, care teams can pinpoint risks that could lead to catastrophes if left unaddressed.

The assessor documents the findings in a hazard report. High-priority risks require immediate control measures across the care team. For example, if the stove poses danger due to client confusion, the team would get a stove timer device preventing longer unattended use until cognition improves through special support services outlined in the plan.

Ideally, the risk assessment for elderly care should occur:

  • Upon initial enrollment in-home care
  • Annually as routine monitoring
  • After a fall or hospitalisation
  • After a major decline in physical condition
  • Upon change in environment like moving homes
  • After natural disasters requiring renovations

Regular assessments allow new risks as your well-being and abilities change over time to get addressed quickly through coordinated planning and support.
