How to evaluate the needs of a senior

Older Americans today are healthier and more active than ever before. The aging baby boomer generation is the fastest-growing demographic in the U.S. By 2030, there will be more than 70 million people age 65 and older, and approximately 85-90 percent of them will be licensed to drive. In fact, seniors are outliving their ability to drive safely by an average of 7-10 years and for the first time in history, we must plan for our “driving retirement” just as we plan for our financial retirement.

Senior drivers are among the safest drivers on the road and often reduce their risk of injury by wearing safety belts, not drinking and driving and by observing speed limits; however, seniors are more likely to be injured or killed in a crash due to age-related fragility. With the exception of teenagers, seniors have the highest crash death rate per mile driven. As we age, our ability to drive safely is affected by natural changes to our bodies over time.

AAA is dedicated to keeping seniors driving for as long as safely possible. We also are committed to promoting viable transportation options for seniors who can no longer drive independently.

Evaluate Your Driving Ability

Evaluations are best if you are concerned that your driving skills may have diminished; were recommended to take a driving skills evaluation by a physician, occupational therapist or family member; or may benefit from supplemental in-car training.

Evolving Vehicle Technology

For the safety of motorists, it is important that automakers play a greater role in educating new car buyers about the ADAS technologies in vehicles.

AAA’s Senior Transportation Mobility Planner is designed to help you start planning today, for a fun, mobile and enriching life tomorrow.

Senior Licensing Laws

By 2030, there will be more than 70 million people age 65 and older, with between 85–90 percent of them licensed to drive.

How to evaluate the needs of a senior

Secretaries wear a number of hats in the workplace. They are the executives’ gatekeepers, the first responders for job seekers looking for open jobs and the employees who have to interact with practically every worker, regardless of position, title or role. Therefore, in addition to their computer proficiency, they need core competencies and professional traits that enable them to perform their job duties. Evaluating a secretary’s job performance requires fair and objective rating for functional expertise and balanced feedback concerning core competencies and professional traits.

Read the secretary’s job description to ensure you have a clear understanding of the secretary’s responsibilities. Review past performance appraisals, attendance and productivity records, feedback from colleagues, disciplinary actions and commendations. If there was a performance improvement plan in place before the current appraisal, review the goals set out in that plan to determine whether she’s achieved the milestones contained in the improvement plan.

Measure his functional skills, meaning how well he knows how to use software applications, such as MS Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint. Rate his proficiency and accuracy in producing letters and spreadsheets. Determine whether his composition skills are up to par — whether his writing skills require constant oversight to catch errors or if he routinely overlooks important elements of written communication. Simplify the rating process for functional expertise by using a numeric or alpha scale. For example, on a scale of 1 to 10, rank his secretarial skills as a 5 or 6 if you believe they are average. For a secretary whose work never has to be corrected, rate his expertise closer to or at a 10.

Rate the secretary’s performance in specialty areas, such as legal, medical and executive assistance. For example, if the secretary works for a law firm, evaluate performance in areas such as how familiar the secretary is with legal processes and the law firm structure and organization. Likewise, evaluate a medical secretary according to duties that include interaction with patients, medical terminology and familiarity with health-care-related patient privacy measures. Executive secretary job performance can be rated according to how the secretary handles logistics for executive board meetings and matters relevant to executive leadership.

Look at the core competencies required to be a secretary; use the job description to determine the core competencies needed to fulfill the job requirements. Core competencies are qualities a secretary needs to do her job. For example, verbal and written communication skills, an eye for detail and perfectionism, and the ability to discern what falls under her supervisor’s purview and which matters she can resolve within her own authority. These are areas that usually can’t be measured using a rating scale like the one used for functional skills. Measuring core competencies must have concrete examples to determine the secretary’s performance rating. For example, to determine where her performance falls in terms of resolving workplace issues with her position’s authority, review the way she handles customer-service issues. If she has effectively resolved issues with irate clients, then her rating should be well above average for problem-solving capabilities.

Examine his professional traits — these often are the traits upon which a hiring decision is made. Candidates with excellent functional expertise and superb core competencies might seem best suited for the secretarial role; however, it’s the professional traits that usually convince a hiring manager that the secretary will be a good fit for the organization. Look for illustrations of professional traits, such as dependability, integrity and work ethic. For example, to evaluate a secretary’s dependability, review his attendance records and feedback from co-workers, if provided. If he rarely misses a day of work for unexpected absences and always is the employee others can count on to pitch in, then his score for dependability should be quite high.

List the secretary’s professional goals for the next evaluation period. If there are goals from the previous evaluation period that haven’t been accomplished, incorporate and prioritize those goals for the coming evaluation period with new goals. Provide balanced feedback for the secretary’s job performance, which means complimentary remarks as well as constructive input.

[toggle title=”Kitbag: Click Here to Open/Close” state=”closed”]•Per DA PAM 623-3, Senior raters comment on the rated NCO’s POTENTIAL, and comments are mandatory. Bullet comments are prohibited. Simply stating concurrence with the rater’s evaluation does not fulfill the intent of this paragraph.

Comments in the senior rater box include comments:

• When the senior rater has not been in the position the minimum number of days necessary to evaluate the rated NCO, he or she will enter the following statement in part V, block b: “I am unable to evaluate the rated NCO because I have not been the senior rater for the required number of days.” In these cases, all other entries in part V, blocks a, b, and c will be left blank. Use the Wizard application to automatically enter the appropriate statement in part V, block b, if he or she is unable to evaluate the rated NCO.

• On unusual about the DA Form 2166–9–1 will also be noted here (for example, APFT and height and weight data or explanatory comments, if not included; lack of rated NCO’s signature; signatures are out of sequence on the report).

• On any substantiated SHARP, EO, and/or EEO complaints resulting from an AR 15–6 investigation or other official investigation by military or civil authorities, the senior rater will annotate a separate comment “does not support SHARP, EO, and EEO.” This occurs if the rated NCO: (1) committed an act of sexual harassment or sexual assault; (2) failed to report a sexual harassment or assault; (3) failed to respond to a complaint or report of sexual harassment or sexual assault; (4) retaliated against a person making a complaint or report of sexual harassment or sexual assault.

• Addressing the lack of a rated NCO’s signature on the NCOER. Use the Wizard application to enter appropriate statement. A report stating that the NCO cannot sign due to CAC issues is unacceptable and such reports will not be processed. The report will not be delayed because it lacks the rated NCO’s signature.

• If the senior rater’s evaluation is based on infrequent observation of the rated NCO.


Potential comments should primarily focus on the rated NCO’s potential for promotion, command, schooling (military and civilian), broadening assignments, successive duty assignments and level of assignments, and/or retention, when applicable.

Narrative Examples:

• SGT Smith’s has strong potential; promote to Staff Sergeant now. Assign as MP Squad leader immediately, and send to ALC as soon as possible. He will continue to succeed and will make an outstanding squad leader. Every effort needs to be made in order to retain Soldiers like him.

• SFC Smith is a stellar NCO, and will absolutely be a CSM someday. Promote now and send to Non-Lethal Weapons Trainer Course immediately. Afford him every opportunity to complete his college education.

• SGT Smith will make an outstanding Staff Sergeant. Send to ALC when eligible, promote when ready. She has unlimited potential and will excel in any duty position. SGT Smith’s APFT performance is improving and on track to meeting the standards soon.

Narrative Examples (for a less than stellar NCO):

• SSG Smith’s needs to take personal initiative to bring himself to the competency level of his current rank. He should not be sent to any military school until he has addressed his shortcomings. Unless SSG Smith takes steps to improve, he should be allowed to ETS without effort to retain.

• SGT Smith will excel in the NCO corps and should be considered for promotion after additional training and experience. He should be sent to his next level NCOES when eligible. SGT Smith should be able to handle additional responsibility after some mentorship and schooling.

If you’re concerned about whether an elderly relative or loved one is having trouble caring for themselves, it may be time to step in and offer some help. Before you start helping your loved one, take time to assess their needs. They may need assistance caring for their medical needs, or perhaps they could benefit from extra support during their day-to-day activities. If you aren’t able to care for them yourself, look for resources in your area such as assisted living facilities or in-home care services. Being a caregiver is challenging, so make sure to take time for your own needs as well!

Everyone should have the opportunity to live independently with dignity – especially our senior populations. While aging can sometimes make independent living difficult, small supports, such as home wellness solutions and home-delivered meals, can help seniors maintain independence in their own homes.

Independence is important to the physical and mental well being of older adults. As a provider of wraparound programs and services that help older adults stay at home and active in their communities, we want to share some insights with you about how independence and activity benefit us as we age.

Why seniors need independence

Loss of independence can be discouraging to older adults. They have spent their entire lives living independently, working jobs, raising families, and making decisions.

The natural effects of aging can sometimes make independent living harder than it once was. Difficulties with mobility, behavioral health conditions such as isolation and loneliness, and financial strains are just some of the contributors to a loss of independence in aging adults.

While we cannot avoid some barriers to independence, we can take the time to understand the importance of independence in seniors and look for ways to increase opportunities for independent living. The following benefits are common results of senior independence and demonstrate how important it is to empower older adults to live independent lives.

1. Feel like an individual

The ability to make choices throughout the day has a big impact on how you feel about yourself. When you are no longer managing the decisions in your life, you might feel like less of an individual.

Older adults have lived their whole lives with their own personalities and beliefs. If they reach a point when they cannot express themselves, they won’t feel like themselves. These feelings can lead to depression, anger, or destructive behavior, which are damaging to both the senior and his/her caregiver.

Make sure you or your loved one is able to maintain their sense of self in the environment they live in. They should be able to personalize their space with photos and items that reflect the things they care about and enjoy. It’s also beneficial for them to make choices in daily living, like the clothes they wear and the food they eat.

2. Maintain balance and strength

Retaining balance and strength is a huge determining factor in someone’s ability to stay independent. It also motivates older adults to stay active, which may result in health benefits that foster independence.

If strength is not routinely worked on, it’s likely an aging individual will lose muscle mass and core balance. Loss of strength and balance can lead to dangerous falls that leave a senior in a hospital or assisted living facility for a long time. Injuries also make it hard to maintain independence.

Maintaining physical ability is a great way to prevent falls that lead to a long-term loss of independence. Evidence-based prevention programs like SteadyU Ohio’s Matter of Balance teach older adults how to manage falls while building up strength, balance, and confidence. There are also mobility devices that provide support for seniors who need help walking, such as walkers and railings.

3. Sense of purpose

Loss of independence can be isolating. Seniors who are isolated often develop feelings of hopelessness and depression, and the negative effects on their mental health can lower their quality of life.

Independence gives seniors a sense of purpose. They have opportunities for achievement, can contribute to the lives of their family, friends, and neighbors, and enjoy activities that they’ve always done.

The chance to set and reach goals has a big impact, even if they seem small. Independence allows older adults to take on the unique challenges of aging head on and overcome them with a sense of accomplishment.

Even if a senior is limited by mobility, they can still gain a sense of purpose through involvement in volunteer activities. For example, VANTAGE RSVP offers a Telecare program. Volunteers provide friendly, reassuring calls to homebound seniors to address social isolation. Volunteerism provides a sense of purpose and involvement in the community.

4. Aids with memory skills

The effects of independent living can contribute to improved health conditions in some older adults. Increased memory skills are just one to name, and an important factor in living a fulfilling life.

Memory loss gradually happens as we age, but independence and activity boost memory skills. Higher activity levels increase blood flow to the brain and using the mind often helps to preserve memory. Daily routines help promote both memory and independence.

5. Gives a sense of control

Sometimes, independence may be the only thing seniors feel that they control. The ability to live independently empowers seniors and reinforces that, though some factors, such as health or financial stability, may prevent them from carrying out some activities they once did, they still have a hold on many aspects of their life.

A sense of control also promotes a feeling of achievement and self-worth. And, feeling in control over their actions, choices and situation can have a positive effect on a person’s mental health.

6. Develops positive relationships

Good rapport can stem from a senior-caregiver relationship built on promoting independence. Caregivers can provide seniors with the tools and resources they need to maintain independence, such as helping them set up their home in a way that promotes fall prevention and helping them navigate digital devices to stay connected with family members.

At VANTAGE, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to live independently with dignity, regardless of age, income, or disability. We offer wraparound programs and services that address the unique needs of seniors who want to remain in their own homes and active in their communities in Summit and surrounding counties in Ohio.

A nursing home, also known as a skilled nursing facility, provides a wide range of health and personal care services.

How to evaluate the needs of a senior

These services typically include nursing care, 24-hour supervision, three meals a day, and assistance with everyday activities. Rehabilitation services, such as physical, occupational, and speech therapy, are also available.

Some people stay at a nursing home for a short time after being in the hospital. After they recover, they go home. However, most nursing home residents live there permanently because they have ongoing physical or mental conditions that require constant care and supervision.

If you need to go to a nursing home after a hospital stay, the hospital staff can help you find one that will provide the kind of care that’s best for you. If you are looking for a nursing home, ask your doctor’s office for recommendations. Once you know what choices you have, it’s a good idea to:

Consider what you want. What is important to you—nursing care, meals, physical therapy, a religious connection, hospice care, or special care units for dementia patients? Do you want a place close to family and friends so they can easily visit?

Talk to friends and family. Talk with friends, relatives, social workers, and religious groups to find out what places they suggest. Check with healthcare providers about which nursing homes they feel provide good care.

Call different nursing homes. Get in touch with each place on your list. Ask questions about how many people live there and what it costs. Find out about waiting lists.

Visit the facility. Make plans to meet with the director and the nursing director. The Medicare Nursing Home Checklist (PDF, 178K) has some good ideas to consider when visiting. For example, look for:

  • Medicare and Medicaid certification
  • Handicap access
  • Residents who look well cared for
  • Warm interaction between staff and residents

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, nursing homes may continue to update their services and policies to comply with state department of health and CDC guidelines. For example, visitors may be required to wear a face mask or cloth face covering. Before you visit, check with the facility for information on their policies. You can also follow CDC guidelines to protect yourself during your visit.

Ask questions during your visit. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. For example, ask the staff to explain any strong odors. Bad smells might indicate a problem; good ones might hide a problem. You might want to find out how long the director and heads of nursing, food, and social services departments have worked at the nursing home. If key members of the staff change often, that could mean there’s something wrong.

Visit the facility again. Make a second visit without calling ahead. Try another day of the week or time of day so you will meet other staff members and see different activities. Stop by at mealtime. Is the dining room attractive and clean? Does the food look tempting?

Carefully read your contract. Once you select a nursing home, carefully read the contract. Question the director or assistant director about anything you don’t understand. Ask a good friend or family member to read over the contract before you sign it.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services requires each State to inspect any nursing home that gets money from the government. Homes that don’t pass inspection are not certified. Ask to see the current inspection report and certification of any nursing home you are considering.
