Interventions in a care plan to be placed in the home and followed are less complex at times than interventions in a written geriatric assessment sent to a judge or used by an elderlaw attorney. The judge and attorneys are not health care providers and may need less jargon-free but yet very clear, interventions.
Once you know where to find the interventions for your care plan, tailor these interventions to the client. For example, consider Gertrude Sterling’s problems in her care plan— She does not want to pay for care pay for care and legal documents have to be crafted by an attorney.
The creative intervention for the GCM client Ms. Sterling’s problem is the geriatric care manager brought in a financial planner and elder law attorney to arrange for one son, to willingly lent his mother the money for care on the condition he will get it back in his inheritance.
Each intervention must have a clear plan. By arranging for the son to pay for home care, through an agreement crafted through a financial planner and elder law attorney ,the GCM created the perfect and ingenious intervention, to Mrs. Sterling’s problem of refusing to pay for home care.
You must state in your intervention who will carry out the intervention, (the son, financial planner and elder law attorney, how it will be carried out meeting of these three drawing up documents to pay for Ms. Sterling’s home care and getting money back from estate after her death, the number of times it will be carried out (2 meetings), and how you will measure that it was carried out (Mrs. Sterling signed the documents acknowledging she agreed with this plan.
