On Monday I too start as the new Activity Director at my facility. (The one we have had for the past two years has been moved to a different position) You and I seem to be in the same boat regarding care plans! I am excited and dreading the care plan process. It seems to be the Bain of my existence; since I do fear that I will do it incorrectly....You will most likely see alot of posts from me regarding this topic in the very near future. I will need all of the groups experience and input that I can get! I certainly am looking forward to the challenge, and as I said it's a very exciting time for me and my team:)

Let me know if you need any help with your careplans. I have done them for a few years and I also host the Care Plan section on the message board.

I would love any advice you have on care plans. I just started my first job out of school and am trying to remember everything from my internship. We used I-Care during my internship, but do not use that at my current job. I remember them being pretty simple, but I can't seem to remember what types of things I wrote in them...especially for people who didn't really have a problem with activities. I am so nervous I am going to do something wrong, so any advice on any of the documentation would be great!

My first piece of advise would be to go to the careplan section on the message boards, I have written some examples of the I care plan and some other tidbits.

I am in need of help Big Chris...am I allowed to D/C the other care plans and write my own w/out state wondering what the heck is going on? Some of these care plans the previous AD did are not realistic and they havent if ever attended 8/10 activities a month as she had careplaned 2 years ago...some of these residents are no longer on 1:1's...one it seems is due to years worth of refusals...what is the proper way to DC that? Or should it be?....sigh...I am second guessing myself left and right...

First of all, sorry for the late replies to these questions.....

 

Can you D/C Careplans that were written by others that are not accurate? Heck yeah! Remember the care plan is an evolving document....we have residents that improve, decline, stay the same, leave and comeback.....so yes. Feel free to change or D/C the care plan as you need. Also, remember that is supposed to also be a communication tool for other departments as well, so I would keep it simple AND informative.
