The care plan begins even before the person becomes a resident. It starts in their home, rehab facility or hospital. It begins with a pre-assessment. This pre-assessment is conducted by our administrator or licensee.
It is a very important part of the process to insure that the resident is compliance with our skill set and that we have a clear understanding of their needs.
During the pre-assessment we are engaging the resident in conversation to help determine cognitive functions, take them for a walk to check ambulation, talk about diet, etc. We gather a great deal of information to help us form a beginning care plan. It also allows us to connect and begin bonding with the resident to help with a smooth transition.
Once the resident is moved in, we formalize a care plan with is a starting point. It includes obtaining a physicians report from the primary doctor and understanding the resident medication needs and instructions from the doctor.
Care plans include the following:
- Physical Health
- Functioning Skills
These Care Plan Segments Include:
- Time Frame
- Persons(s) responsible for implementation
- Method of evaluating progress.
Care plans are adjusted every 90 days or sooner if necessary.
