Understand Care Needs

-A +A

Determining your care needs

To find your care solution, you must first determine your care needs. Needs could include medical assistance; help with day-to-day tasks such as bathing, cooking or driving; or increased social interaction. If you are a caregiver, you might consider additional help or respite care. Assessing your needs will help you determine which care option is right for you, your loved ones, family members or others.
