- Family and home assessment
- According to the National Institute for Health, "Factors such as the patient's age and living arrangements may affect how easily a change in level of care can be accomplished. The assessment will look at the following:"
1. Age of the patient and family members.
2. Living arrangements.
3. Whether the patient has a spouse or children.
4. Level of education of the patient and family.
5. Language spoken in the home.
6. Cultural beliefs and practices.
7. Whether family and friends are able to help during treatment.
8. The age and floor plan of the home. Will medical equipment (such as a hospital bed, oxygen tank, or portable monitor) fit in the bedroom, if needed, and is wiring adequate? Can a person in a wheelchair move through the house easily?
