The Non-Problem Problem Statement

Recommended Posts

My biggest pet peeve about the care planning process is writing a problem statement that is not a problem. I do have my staff write their strengths but doesn't it seem like we're making their able to determine their own routine or ability to initiate independent pursuits a problem? I guess this is more of a vent and my own craziness but maybe someone can help me re-think this, because it drives me crazy seeing "Problem: I am an independent resident..."

That is the point! We are moving away from thinking of a care plan as dealing with problems. Even though most software has it stated as the "problem" statement, we are moving to change that whole way of thinking. So call it a STRENGTH statement instead!
