Care Plans Need to be acceptable. Sometimes the client, family or third party may SIMPLY REJECT your care plan intervention.Let’s try an example and see what to do.Here is your intervention for Mr. Jefferson and Sally Hemingway to improve their communications with their families and their are issues -see You-Tube about Mr. Jefferson
1. Improve Communication with Mr. Jefferson’s out of town family. GCM or aging professional ‘s goal is to be to have Tom Jefferson and Sally Hemingway able to use Skype on the computer to videoconference with Mr. Jefferson’s out of town children and Sally’s out of town family.
a. GCM to bring over different styles of headphones to try with Mr. Jefferson’s s hearing aid
b. GCM to give the recommendations to long distance daughter Alice to purchase through her discount at work.
c. GCM to arrange for computer consultant Pleasure Point Computer to come to house to set up Skype, enlarge the fonts and icons on computer on both Sally and Mr. Roosevelt’s computers and teach them how to use the program.
d. GCM to email out of town children to explain the plan and give the requirements (, install Skype) Have out of town children also sign up, as it is free.
e. GCM to arrange with children and Mr. Jefferson a regular time to talk on Skype k. (I.e. Sunday at 11 am)
f. GCM to ask Sally arranges time to “Skype” with her children and grandchildren allowing more opportunities to connect with her family.
As a GCM or an aging professional you arrange all this BUT Mr. Jefferson rejects it saying it is too hard to adapt to new technology. Also one of his son’s who is says he is a technophobic refuses to agree
So your care plan intervention is rejected .
However Sally accepts this and starts using Skype with good result, helping her feel closer to her grandchildren.
You decide it better to come up with a new care plan intervention for Mr. Jefferson with a telephone conference with his adult children, which he accepts this new intervention.
