Interventions in a care plan- how do you craft them? First of all, what are they in simple terms – they are solutions to the problems of your geriatric care management or aging client.
Where do you find them? You find the interventions for your care plan in your completed assessment tools and their care plans. You tailor these interventions to the client.
For example, consider my You Tube Dual Assessment March 14 with Mr. Tommy Jefferson – Mr. Jefferson problems includes self-care deficits. His care provider is his “significant other-“Sally Hemingway, who is in her 80’s. They are living together as a couple. She is presently assisting him with bathing, dressing, making meals shopping and driving.
You, the geriatric care manager , or aging professional ,has done a dual assessment of both Sally, the family care provider and Tommy, the care receiver. Through your functional and psychosocial assessment a have Mr. Jefferson and caregiver assessment of Sally Hemingway, you know you need to craft new interventions for this couple. .
You realize that a new intervention is needed, as Sally is 80 and risks injury to herself both physically and mentally. So the new intervention to this problem might be hiring a paid care provider to come in to protect her health and give her respite. Each intervention must have a clear plan.
