“How are your parents doing?” we’ve all been asked this sometimes difficult question casually or earnestly at some point. Our automatic reply is often, “They’re doing fine.”
But do we really know?
A customised care plan by a doctor ensures that our parents' state of health is accurately assessed and tracked. This allows conditions to be properly managed and treated early if possible.
The first part of a care plan is a comprehensive health assessment to detect conditions common in the elderly and in the family history. The home environment is also assessed to ensure that the levels of care and safety meet your parent’s needs. Once at-risk areas are identified, customised and periodic assessments track your parent’s health over time, so you can take proactive action to save both pain and money.
The second part of a care plan proposes several combinations of home care services for you to choose from based on your budget and your parent’s health and living environment.

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Care Plans
What is the process of obtaining a care plan?Drop us an email or give us a call! We will arrange a time to visit you and your parent to discuss how a care-plan may help your parent receive better care. Prior to the home-visit, online health assessment form will be sent to you for us to get some basic information about your parents’ condition. A home-visit will be scheduled after to clarify any further questions and obtain some blood samples (if necessary). Our doctor and nurse will then put together a care plan for your review. To obtain a care plan, please contact our team at SilverAlly to arrange a free assessment of your parent’s health.
What is the role of the nurse and doctor in preparing a care plan?During the first home-visit, our nurse will clarify certain information provided in the online assessment form and may conduct some basic blood tests so that we can better understand your parent’s condition. Based on the initial assessment and home-visit, the nurse will draft out the care plan for your parent. Our doctor will then review the care plan and tests results before arranging a second home-visit to do a physical assessment for your parent. After, the doctor will review and approve the care plan before sending to our care-coordinator to present to you.
