Care Planning Awareness FAQs
What is Care Planning?
Care planning relates to the personalised care for a patient or community. A care plan is a written document (electronic or paper based) that defines the areas the care plan covers for the patient.
Are care plans unique?
Yes. A care plan should be individualized to the patient. Ideally, the patient should be involved in the development of the plan as much as they reasonably can. In its simplest form, the care plan is a means of communicating and organising the actions related to an individuals’ care.
Why should care planning involve the patient?
Care plans focus on one’s specific needs, encouraging them to have the best quality of life possible. By working with the patient you can re-assess regularly to ensure they meet their needs while allowing them as much space as possible to live their life independently. Without patient input, this would be extremely difficult to achieve.
What might a care plan for a patient include in a care home?
In a care home, the plan would typically cover assessing whether the care needs meet the criteria, the desired outcomes of the care plan (in conjunction with the patients’ wishes), and ways to reduce the needs of the patient in question. It may relate to medication, level of social interaction and will look at ways to help the patient retain as much dignity and respect as possible.
