How does the TCARE assessment determine what step three services are recommended to my caregiver?

(1) The TCARE assessment process gathers the following information reflecting the current status of both you and your caregiver in order to recommend services for your caregiver:
(a) TCARE screening scores from the five measures described in WAC 388-106-1931;
(b) Caregiver obligations;
(c) Caregiver's phase in the caregiving journey;
(d) Potential risk of out-of-home placement;
(e) Care receiver's need for assistance with activities of daily living and instrumental activities of daily living;
(f) Care receiver's memory status, physical health conditions, and behavioral support needs; and
(g) Caregiver's understanding of the care receiver's level of need and the ability to safely provide care with the assistance of available resources/services.
(2) Based upon the information gathered during the TCARE assessment process described in subsection (1) of this section, one of three primary goals, as defined in WAC 388-106-1925, is established for your caregiver with at least one strategy identified for meeting that goal. One or more of the five strategies described in WAC 388-106-1930, which are linked to recommended services and supports that have the most potential to help your caregiver continue providing care safely while also addressing their needs as a caregiver, may be recommended to reach the established goal.
