Assistance With Long-Term Care
for the Aged and Chronically Ill
Adult Evaluation and Review Services (AERS)
As we grow older, individuals and families may need help in making decisions about long-term living arrangements for themselves, older parents, grandparents and other family members. The AERS program (formerly known as the Geriatric Evaluation Service or GES) is designed to assist aged and/or chronically ill adults in the community who are considering a nursing home or other institution for long-term care. AERS staff members conduct a comprehensive evaluation to identify services available to help the individual remain in the community or in the least restrictive environment while functioning at the highest possible level of independence and personal well-being.
How AERS Can Help
The AERS team, consisting of nurses, a social worker, and a physician consultant, assesses the individual's health and needs in the home setting. Recommendations for needed services and/or interventions are then discussed with the individual, family member or care provider.
