Blog How Do You Create a Care Plan –
How do you create a care plan or your professional opinion of what the family ought to do to solve its problems? This is part of a geriatric assessment.
You begin by gathering all of the data with your assessment tools: and creating a care plan with each assessment. This should include your functional, psychosocial assessment, home safety, depression and cognitive assessments. You then add additional data you have gleaned from any specialized assessment you have done, such as care provider, spiritual, quality of life or moving assessments and care plan. You are again like Sherlock Holmes – a detective trying to solve a mystery- what are the client’s problems and what interventions will you use to solve those problems.
