Service User Care Plan
Having assessed the needs and the risks in the situation, we then – again with help from the service user and their carer – prepare a plan for the care we expect to deliver. This is called a Service User Care Plan because the service user is central to it. The Care Plan will specify the services we will provide, with details like timings of care worker visits and the specific tasks to be performed. It will also state what we all hope to be the objectives of providing the service and how we plan to achieve those objectives.
Reassessing the need and reviewing the care
Over time needs may change. More or less care may be needed, the type or pattern of service may have to be varied or new risks may become apparent. So, again with the service user’s help, we will keep needs under review and take decisions about the care accordingly. If at any time there are aspects about the care that do not match the service user’s needs, this can be easily addressed.
