A great way to get started would be to complete the Needs Assessment for the senior(s) in need (you can complete more than one if needed). The Needs Assessment will result in a number between 1 and 5 -- 1 being the most independent, and 5 being the most dependent on others for care.
The Needs Assessment will also match you up with providers in the area that can meet these needs. You can go back to the homepage or type in the city, state, or zip code at the top of the page to do a search for providers in the area. You will see the green "independence scale" number next to each listing, which pertains to the level of care each provider can meet.
You can email each provider directly through the site, or give them a call for more information. You can share the Needs Assessment results with family and loved ones, as well as provider listings by clicking "Share with Friends and Family."
