A new family needing our services usually gets in touch with our Family Services Coordinator who then sets up an appointment for a visit. This visit serves two purposes. The first purpose is to allow the Family Services Coordinator to privately interview the caregiver, asking questions about the caregiver’s and client’s needs, and to complete the enrollment package. The second purpose is to allow the staff to get to know the client better and conduct an initial assessment of their cognitive and physical abilities.
