Avenidas offers families a special geriatric care management package. This includes an initial meeting to discuss the situation, then a clinical social worker visits the older adult in their home and conducts a comprehensive assessment, including a dementia screening, medical history review, nutritional status, home safety issues, etc., to make sure the scope of the problem is understood. In a follow-up consultation, the written care plan is reviewed with the family, which includes the results of the assessment, recommendations, and referrals. The families can choose to implement the plan on their own, or retain Avenidas Care Partners for further assistance in arranging services and monitoring results. Avenidas also offers information and assistance by phone at 650-289-5433 or in person, providing helpful resources on topics such as housing options, services, meal delivery, etc. Their clinical social workers also offer consultations for family members to discuss their aging parents, or ongoing counseling sessions to help people deal with grief, loneliness or anxiety.
