A plan of care is something that describes in an easy accessible way the services and support being provided, and should be put together and agreed with the person through the process of care planning and review.
We design our services based upon our comprehensive assessment, which is conducted at the commencement of any new service users time with us and is reassessed on a periodic basis. The plan has the following aims:
- A record of needs, actions, and responsibilities.
- A tool for managing risk
- A plan which can be used and understood by service users/patients, families and carers and other agencies, as well as colleagues.
- Something that service users feel they have played an integeral role in formulating.
- Based on a thorough assessment of need.
- A multi-professional, multi-agency endeavour; Co-ordinated by the most appropriate person, such as a Care Co-ordinator.
- Produced in the most appropriate forum.
- Shared effectively with those who are part of it, the written record of a plan of action negotiated with the person to meet their health and social needs
