Partners in Healthcare: Putting a Care Plan in Place

June 25, 2012 - 10:00 am

At Partners in Healthcare in Orlando, Florida, we believe in planning care solutions that best suit a person’s situation! As home care experts, we’re always happy to help establish an in-home care plan for those in need of home care, and below are some of the most important points for a thoughtful care plan.

An agency plan of care should cover the following prior to the caregiver being scheduled in the home:

  • Illnesses/injuries, and signs of an emergency medical situation;
  • Likes and dislikes;
  • Medications, and how and when they should be taken;
  • Need for dentures, eyeglasses, canes, walkers, etc.;
  • Possible behavioral problems and how best to deal with them;
  • Problems getting around (in or out of a wheelchair, for example, or trouble walking);
  • Special diets or nutritional needs; and
  • Therapeutic exercises.

In addition, this information is helpful to the in-home care worker:

  • Clothing the senior may need (if/when it gets too hot or too cold);
  • How you can be contacted (and who else should be contacted in an emergency);
  • How to find and use medical supplies and medications;
  • Where to find food, cooking utensils, and serving items;
  • Where to find cleaning supplies;
  • Where to find light bulbs and flashlights, and where the fuse box is located (in case of a power failure);
  • Where to find the washer, dryer and other household appliances (as well as instructions on how to use them).
