Personalised Care Plans
In layman’s language at Dove homecare, we will draft a personalised caring schedule. It will be well planned to achieve the maximum level of satisfaction and quality lifestyle.
Personalised Care Plans is a patient-owned approach to care planning. It helps our loved ones to consider in advance of their appointment what health and “lifestyle” goals they would like to achieve, resulting in a more collaborative and productive care planning session.
The main aim or focus is to provide a good life and ensure the support is designed and coordinated around the desired outcomes. The Personalised Care Plan is established to achieving individual’s centred care with long-term conditions i.e. (LTC). This plans generally planned for the persons who are suffering from the long-term diseases like physical and mental health conditions.
What is personalised care?
Personalised care planning empowers individuals, promotes independence and helps people to be more involved in decisions about their care. It centres on listening to individuals, finding out what matters to them and finding out what support they need. Personalised care planning is essentially about addressing an individual’s full range of needs, taking into account their health, personal, family, social, economic, educational, mental health, ethnic and cultural background and circumstances. It recognizes that there are other issues, in addition to medical needs, that affect a person’s total health and well-being.
Who is for Personalised Care?
This is for people with long-term physical and mental health conditions; it can be beneficial to anyone with ongoing health and care needs for e.g.
➢ people at risk of frailty
➢ people undergoing rehabilitation
➢ people those receiving treatment for cancer
➢ people with complex needs receiving care and support from a number of different agencies
➢ people with substance misuse problems
The outcomes of Personalised Care Plans
Personalised care and support planning focuses on the conversation between the individual, their carer, and the care practitioner (or supporter). The key points of these discussions are then recorded as the person’s agreed ‘care and support plan’.
● Change in health and wellbeing, including physical, psychological, or psychosocial health
● Change in capabilities for managing condition
● Change in health-related behaviors (secondary)
● Change in use of health services (secondary)
Here are some examples of personal outcomes:
• To better manage my pain relief so I don’t wake up at night
• To stay in my house as long as possible
• To stop taking anti-depressants because I don’t like the side-effects
• To learn how to cook healthy meals that the whole family will enjoy
• To have the same person caring for me from 9am-3pm so my parents can go to work and do not need to be at home for staff changeovers
• To meet new people in my local area so I don’t have to travel into the centre of town
• To receive end of life care at the hospice close to where my sister lives
