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. Their visit may also include a home risk assessment for elderly that will identify any need for equipment procurement and home modifications.

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.
