Who is Bev?
Smart Status & Care Assessments
Bev is our Virtual Care Planner for older adults and their families. Bev is a highly sophisticated status/well-being assessment tool we have developed with a partner to enable families, healthcare professionals and other clinicians to critically and swiftly evaluate an older adult’s functional status and overall well-being.
Our virtual care assessment was developed with renowned and highly experienced, practicing geriatricians and gerontologists and covers all key areas affecting the quality of life and independence for older adults: clinical, emotional, environmental, financial, and legal. A completed Bev assessment provides immediate insight as to the current functional status of the older adult and recommends specific, evidence-based interventions that are geared towards improving the quality of life, safety, and independence of the older adult such that they can continue to live at home (Age-in-Place).
As we get older, our physical and emotional needs change. Often, families and friends can sense that support is required for their elderly loved ones – but it’s difficult to know exactly what is needed and where to start.
Bev makes it possible for anyone to conduct a professional level Geriatric Care Manager-type assessment. Bev affords older adults and their families a simple, yet valuable tool to understand the current functional status of an older adult as well as actions that may be required to maintain independence and improve safety and quality of life for an elderly relative, friend or patient.
Bev empowers older adults and their families to exercise choice and control over the types of support given to elderly individuals, and to see and measure the impact that support is having on an on-going basis.
How Does Bev Work?
3 Easy Steps
Step 1 - Complete Evaluation
Complete the assessment by answering a series of questions relating to well-being, activity, and quality of life. Typically, this is done by a family member, relative or friend on behalf of the person being assessed but it can also be done by the older adult themselves.
Step 2 - Automated Report
Review the final care assessment report which includes Quality of Life scores – broken down into six categories, ranging from Physical Well-being to Activity & Purpose – as well as personalized suggestions for improving quality of life.
Step 3 - Track and Share
Adopt recommended evidenced-based interventions for improving scores and track changes over time. Share the results and changes with selected family members, clinicians, and caregivers.
