Does anyone know where/how I can accurately evaluate how much care my dad and his wife actually need? I visit several times per week, and I do all their life management stuff, but (thanks to a few people on this board!) I see their need is greater than anticipated.
There is a home care aide 6 hours/week who cooks, does laundry, etc. I've decided that for this next epoch in their care, we need more in-home help.
I am never sure because they report their health differently each day. Other than the ADLs test, is there any other assessment tool you've found helpful?
