What is a personalised care plan and what are the benefits for patients?

​There’s no ‘one size fits all’ solution when it comes to health and social care. Every individual has their own needs and requirements, and these impact the type of care and the level of care they should receive.

A personalised care plan factors in multiple things including the needs of a client as well as what matters to them. It gives them more autonomy and choice over how they are cared for at any given time.

Our experience of providing care in a variety of settings and disciplines, including supported living, respite care, hospital to homecare to name a few, shows us that care based on a personalised plan empowers healthcare professionals to deliver higher standards of care whilst also improving the health and wellbeing of the client.

This people centred approach applies to both long term health and immediate wellbeing strategies.

How does a personalised care plan work?

Our Homecare division is experienced in providing a sensitive and caring service when organising care at home for people with varying needs.

We aim to make the process as simple as possible and provide peace-of-mind that our clients are making the right decision for themselves or their loved one.

​We guide our clients through the entire process, starting with listening to their needs and expectations, then carrying out a detailed assessment in order to ensure we have all the information we need to shape a personalised care plan which is not only based on the care needs of the individual but also their likes, dislikes, goals and aspirations.

Before the support packaged is implemented, we offer a consultation period where our clients can provide feedback, ask any questions or make any changes to the suggested plan.

Importantly, as the needs of our clients change over time, a personalised care plan adapts with them.Personalised care and support planning is a continuous process which at the heart of it allows us to build stronger relationships with our clients, enabling us to deliver the best care at any given time.

The key benefits of a personalised care plan

An effective personalised care plan should be solutions based, meaning it empowers clients to set goals and reach them. In some cases this can reduce long term reliance on care and is also proven to improve overall wellbeing.

Our experienced staff are experts in engaging and encouraging the people we support to take small steps to become more confident and independent.

Furthermore, digitalising personalised care plans makes services more collaborative. Both healthcare professionals and their clients can access and update the plan, documenting any key changes that may impact the type of care required and providing a more dynamic level of service.

If you’d like to discuss care options for yourself or a loved one and want more information on how we can deliver care support that gives clients ownership and empowers them to make key decisions, we’d love to hear from you.
