How do you find the remaining problems in the care plan? After addressing the first problem, the problem reason the referral source hired you in the first place, (say father has Parkinson’s and is falling and son would like a geriatric assessment)
The next step would be by listing the client’s functional problems. What are the deficits you discovered in your functional assessment? A few examples might be the following: unable to prepare meals, unable to walk without a cane, unable to bathe, in pain, poor diet, difficulty swallowing. Start with the most serious functional problem. Perhaps even though your client has Parkinson’s, he or she refuses to wear a helmet, and has had falls. Begin there.
Next of course a care plan is a prescription to a problem so you offer a solution on the interventions side of your care plan. So if your client has a care provider the intervention for falls would be adult child to purchase helmet. Then care provider to remind client to wear helmet when he or she gets up to walk. If the client is not steady on her or his feet you might add do standby assistance each time the clients gets up to walk. You have only used one assessment tool next we will look at adding the care plan from a second assessment tool, psychosocial assessment.
