LIFE-NWPA provides or arranges for a full array of health services, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, that is 365 days a year. As part of the LIFE-NWPA enrollment process, a team made up of doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, rehabilitation specialists and other health care professionals will assess the participant's needs.
Does the participant require physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, or all three? What are their in-home needs? Is in-home nursing care required? What in-home personal care services are needed? Should dementia care and activities for people be a part of their care plan? What type of senior recreation activities are best for this particular participant? Are senior transportation services required?
LIFE-NWPA uses these assessments to develop a goal for the participant maximizing their independence. The IDT then creates an individualized care plan that keeps our participant, their family, and/or caregiver in mind.
As medical or social needs change, the care plan may be modified accordingly. For instance, when a participant has a life-limiting illness, the LIFE-NWPA Interdisciplinary Team also acts as the participants palliative care team, addresses the participant's special needs and honors each participant if medically necessary wishes as he or she approaches the end of life. Participants may receive this care in many places — home, a family participant's home, a nursing facility or hospital.
