It is important to identify the values and beliefs in which person centered planning is based upon. Ensuring the resident is the is at the centre of this process from the begining to the end. Take a person centered approach and ensure the resident is envolved as well as any family and friends that will help contribute towards care planning. This will provided extensive, fine details of the residents wishes and beliefs. It is very important the resident feels included even if they have difficulty communication; the discussion itself with relatives will make it meaningfull to the resident. It is also important that this is reviewed reguarly with resident and family to ensure all inforamtion is correct as things do often change over time. Person centred planning ensures we take into consideration the residents wants, needs, wishes and beliefs. It provides almost a paper manual of how to care for that resident in the way that it best for them and is talior made, person centred, relationship centred and meaningful to that resident. At admiral court we have an online system called ICARE, this has been created to store all of our residents documentation. Each residents care plan is electronic and divided into different sections. Within the planning of a care plan there are lots of drop down boxes of information to be selected which may or may not apply to each resident. Within each careplan there are also boxes that typed information is to be inputted. This is the part that makes the careplan person centred according to each individual.

Person centred careplanning and thinking is under the care act and is a requirement for anyone living within a social care setting. In some sectors a specalised trained person is responsiable for care planning. At Admiral Court, anyone can be part of the careplanning process. Generally nurse and seniors are delegated this responsibility within their job role. It is our responsibility to ensure all information is correct at this is a live document. It is important to involve the resident plus their family and friends. Also having a team member as their named keyworker to support the resident and family to build that trust as it is often difficult for a loved one to decide for there relative to be care for in a social care environment.

It is really important the resident feel involved in planning for their own care plan. it needs to be meaningful to them as an individual, person centered and relationship centered. At admiral court we cant to be recognised as the leading care providers of high quality relationship centered care to all our residents. This is our vision and is implemented in everyday we are support our residents. This makes our residents feel valued. Sometimes it can be difficult to plan a residents care plan with only the resident. Sometimes residents are unable to participate due to lack of capasity or communication. This is where family and friends of the resident will be encouraged to be involved within care planning. Sometimes there may be a disagreement between the residents needs and what their family wish for them, building that relationship enables both participants to discuss and come to an arrangment.

As a senior carer at Admiral court I helped a resident to identify what was working and what wasnt working for her. This resident was able to communicate all of her needs and had the capacity to make her own day to day decision about her care. This lady had previously fallen at home and fractured her ankle, mobilising independenty was very difficult as she was no longer independent. This was extreamly frustrating for her. We discussed a plan of action and a care plan around her which reflected all of her needs. The resident wanted to improve on her mobility to become as independent as possible. With the input from the resident, carers and myself we were able to support her in these wishes. Over time the resident gained strenght and confidence and eventually was able to mobilise independently with a frame.
