A Living at Home Assessment is a person-centred assessment of the person and their carer's needs, which leads to a care plan and individualised service responses. The assessment and care planning process sits within the service coordination framework and takes an ASM approach to:
• building on the person's and carer's autonomy, by offering choices and focusing on individual strengths and interests
• encouraging & supporting people to regain skills and capacities wherever possible
• strengthening social, community and family connections
A Living at Home Assessment is a broad, holistic needs based assessment and can include: a service specific assessment and care plan for the range of HACC services delivered by the assessing organisation; a referral action plan to both HACC and non-HACC services that cannot be met by the assessing organisation.
A Living at Home Assessment is a funded HACC activity delivered by designated HACC Assessment Services.
A SCTT referral is required from service providers – the referral should contain the following:
• Confidential referral cover sheet – clearly outlining the reason for referral
• Consumer information profile
• Summary and referral information profile
• Consumer consent to share information profile
• A copy of the Grampians Region Service Provider Home Safety Checklist (or your equivalent agency safety checklist)
