What is a care plan?
A care plan is a document that details what kind of care your loved one will receive from a Devoted Live-in carer. A care plan is a collaborative document. The details of the care plan must be approved by both the family and the carer. This is to ensure the carer is providing exactly the right care at all times.
The care plan should provide all the information on how the person should be cared for to ensure anyone involved is fully briefed.
Every client has a different set of needs, requirements, and routines. Having a care plan means that clear instructions are in place from the very beginning of care, ensuring that all aspects of the client’s needs and wants have been taken into account.
A detailed care plan means that a carer is best able to support your loved one physically, emotionally, and socially. It also provides consistency of care for your loved one in the event of switching carers, such as during respite breaks for your main carer.
Behind every care plan is an individual with a unique set of needs. Over time, their requirements, wishes, and preferences are likely to change. A living document is one that is constantly being updated and revised as the circumstances change. We will regularly review your loved one’s careplan with you to ensure that it continues to provide the best and most appropriate level of care.
