Each resident has their own Care Plan tailored to their specific needs. This is established before admission to the Home and is regularly reviewed to ensure the resident is responding satisfactorily. Any adverse reaction to the Plan will prompt an immediate review of the Care Plan by the Care Plan Manager, Nurse as appropriate.
Family and relatives will be encouraged to participate in the resident’s daily routine so far as is practicable and are invited to periodic reviews, key-worker meetings and relative meetings. Residents and their Relatives are always welcome to chat with a member of the Care Staff if they have any concerns.
The Care Plan is reviewed at three levels:
1.Daily on a shift changeover basis, when the resident’s daily care notes are handed over by the out-going shift staff member to the in-coming staff, with the resident’s responses and activity patterns discussed as needed. Changes to the Care Plan may be proposed at this stage.
2.At the end of the settling-in period.
3.Thereafter a formal review is held with the Care Staff on a three monthly basis.
Certain amendments to the care Plan may be subject to authorisation by the resident’s GP. All amendments to the Care Plan are recorded in full.
