At Caretakers we focus on personalised care planning on the person and their history, preference and take all their wishes into account, when forming the plan of care with them.
It comes as a shock and invasion of privacy when a person finds themselves needing assistance or care to remain in their own homes, we try and keep this invasion of privacy to a minimum by involving the person in all aspects of their plan of care.
On receiving a referral or enquiry for care, firstly we set up a meeting at the clients home with family, or any significant others requested. To discuss and set up a plan of care, to come to an agreement with everyone involved.
From this a plan of care will be set in action, regularly monitored and reviewed for changes of their needs.
All care plans are monitored on going with formal reviews carried out every 6 months.
Any specific needs that the client may have, all specialised training will be given involving client and significant others at all times.
We have a team of carers within Caretakers who are fully trained in all stages of Dementia care.
