devoncaperton 0 Report Share Posted January 20, 2015 Greetings! I am looking for insight on how to develop meaningful goals for resident Care plans. I am having difficulty striking a balance between having a valuable long term goal, and having a measurable goal. A generic measurable goal such as: "A resident will participate in ____ activities ____ times per week through the review date" is easy to measure, but really feels more like an intervention than a goal. And picking a number of times to participate in a particular activity feels arbitrary to me. Out of all the ways of spending time, why is this one more valuable than others? The more honest-feeling goals of "so and so will experience satisfaction with daily activity involvement" are difficult to document and measure. One formula I have seen which might strike a happy middle ground is "so and so will demonstrate (quality of life, satisfaction, engagement, etc.) by participating in _______ activities _____ times per week through the review date." However, it still doesn't seem quite true to real life. Any suggestions on improving resident goals for care plans? Thanks! -D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
