  • Catastrophic event: Has the elder experienced a stroke, heart attack, aneurism, or fall with injury?
  • Chronic ailment or progressive decline: Has the elder been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s ALS, MS, or some other chronic ailment, or experienced a decline in functional capacity for any reason?
  • Consideration of spouse’s needs: Does the elder have a spouse whose financial or health care needs must be considered in light of the elder’s medical condition?
  • Hospitalization: Is the elder hospitalized and the family has been told that returning home is not an option?
  • Coordination concerns: Does the elder have a variety of healthcare providers and need coordination and advocacy for quality care?
