Person Centered Care Facility

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I am working at a person centered care facility. Does anyone else work at one? I think we were PCC facilities before the term came up. I am wondering if anyone has been in a survey at a person center care facilty? Has anyone written I plans and if so, can you tell me about them.

Thanks,

Activity I care plans- We are now writing the "I care plans" It is a lot easier than the traditional care plans. It helps to focus our goals on the resident goals. Instead of ________will attend 2-3 activitys per week type goal. It might be. " I am here due to a fall at home." I plan to attend therapy to gain back my strenght. While I am here I might watch t.v., read, talk on my cell phone with my family. Please assist me to know what activities are going on. I used to sew and might like to attend art & crafts. I also like church and Bible study. Please assist me to and from activity area with my wheel chair.

 

During my visits with them I will ask them what they think we can help them with while they are in the facility and how they want to spend their time. I let them know we will be in for visits and will invite them to attend the programs if it is okay with them.

 

The surveyors liked the care plans when they visited. The asked for details from nursing plans regarding walking. If the resident needed anti slip footwear before walking they wanted to see that on the care plan.

Person-centred care was a phrase we used a lot in the UK in the 80s in social work, now they use it there in nursing homes as part of 'dementia care mapping' to record a resident's daily responses, but it simply means meeting the practical, emotional, spiritual etc needs of a person as the basis for their care, ie an individualised approach rather than institutionalised.

 

In Alzheimers it is very useful because what is meaningful to the resident may not be easy to communicate, by starting with the resident and getting to know them you can build up a picture of who they are and more effectively plan their activities.

 

They will then be less frustrated and more filfilled because someone took time to understand them and meet their personal needs and preferences, which reduces problem behaviours ( crying, screaming, hitting for example ) and increases health and well-being.

 

It's an idealistic model in that sometimes the requirements of the setting, budget, staffing etc can't always facilitate highly individualised care, but it's a really rewarding way to work too, even the lowest functioning individual retains some aspects of personality. I love those little moments when someone's humour or story break through!

 

Good luck.

I, too, work at a person centered are facility. I have been here for the survey process and can thankfully say all went smoothly. We tried usin the I care plans tone point but found that a more descriptive care plan style works best. Now, when I saw descriptive, I don't necessarily mean specific. You don't want to get too specific with things that might hurt you in the long run. However, being person centered, it is good to be descriptive of character. For example (resident's name) enjoys helping others during group activities. Then, for a goal you might want to (rather than say attend activites of choice 2-3 times a week... blah..blah), will sit (resident's name) next to (another resident who requires limited assistance) during activities so that he or she may assist as needed. I even add certain quotes that residents might commonly use so that way when someone reads the care plan they would be able to easily identify the resident it refers to. An example of this is I have a resident who is on a diet but still loves her desserts so everytime she asks for a piece of pie or cake she will say "don't tell my son." At my facility, reading this line alone will allow anyone to identify the resident. Hope this helps.

 

Thanks,

Our facility has begun them and we were not too thrilled,BUT NOW they are great, you put yourself in the residents place and ask what do you need to know about me, what do i like, why I am resistant etc

an example would be:

problem/concern/strength

I dreaded coming to a nursing home, so I might be angry and withdraw from what you offer me, I have hx of depression and am in pain rt: my osteoarthritic back

Goal:

While I am in this facility engage me in one or more forms of a spiritual prgm, I take great strength from my faith easing my anxiety and as a diversion from my pain etc..

Hope this helped....................it really gives you the answers from the "what if it were me" mentality

     Thank you for correcting the information that was released. I recently took the test for certification with NAAPCC and it was a very comprehensive and thorough test. It was not a simple easy test to get you certified. You had to know the information in order to complete and pass. I would recommend this avenue to anyone especially if finances are a struggle for MEPAP I & II. I did purchase the book for long-term care seventh edition and without that I would have struggled.

    Celeste is awesome!! Anytime i have a question she gets right back with me and she is very informative. At first I didn't know if i was going to like the new course just for the fact my MEPAP course was the own pace and I work Full time plus have 3 kids. But i am loving it! It is very structured and with due dates I feel like i am holding myself more accountable for completed assignments sooner than later. It has actually been a beneficial change for me.. Thanks so much!!!

    Good Evening I wanted to let you know that I had completed mepap 1 and had only a couple weeks left of mepap 2 so I had looked at path 2 and have taken the activities test and passed so just sending in the application. I wanted to thank you for giving all your time to us even while Kathy was ill. It didn't go unnoticed, you was a great support and helpful at ideas or even different ways of changing thoughts to positive while feeling defeated. Thank You Stacey Passa AP-BC
