Care Planning

Our person centred approach to care places emphasis on care planning. Upon your admission to Silver Stream a Care Plan will be compiled by your Care Team. Your Care Plan is commenced within forty-eight hours of your admission, or earlier if indicated by a general risk assessment, from a comprehensive assessment drawn up with you.

Your Care Plan reflects your assessment findings and sets out in detail the action to be taken by staff, to ensure that all aspects of your health, personal and social care needs are met. All residents, including those with greater medical care needs are actively encouraged to participate in this process.

The Care Plan meets clinical guidelines produced by professional bodies concerned with care of the older person. Your Care Plan will be updated regularly to reflect your daily changing needs and best practice. Care Plans are based upon the Roper, Logan and Tierney Model of Nursing (1998). Clinical audits are completed monthly by our professional nursing teams and are then audited centrally by the Management Team.

You and your family are welcome, and encouraged, to review and contribute to your Care Plan. It’s usually best to arrange an appointment with the Person In Charge or Team Leader so that there are no interruptions during your discussions.

As a resident you will be consulted and informed of any changes in your care plan. Your next of kin or nominated representative may also be included, to ensure that all parties involved in your care are aware of your care needs and choices. If you are unable or do not wish to participate, this will be documented in your care plan but you are still welcome to contribute at any time.

The care plan is formally evaluated by staff in consultation with you and your representatives. It will be updated as indicated by your changing needs and circumstances and your current objectives for health, personal and social care. The care plan is reviewed every three months or if your health or social care needs change.
