Care and Support Planning

All of our residents are provided with an individualised care and support plan because we recognise that each resident has different needs and preferences. Alongside residents and their loved ones, our staff work to provide the ideal personalised care to benefit each resident. 

At Applegarth, we provide Person- Centred Care which means that the care we provide our residents are centred around their preferences and needs. 

We don’t believe there can be a ‘one size fits all’ approach when it comes to care. We work closely with our residents and their loved ones to develop a plan that reflects our residents needs and choices. 

This means we can provide you with the care and support you need while you continue to have choice, dignity and independence. 

Process

When you first join Applegarth, we will begin discussing your needs and requirements in order to develop the best care plan to suit you. Our staff take the time to help you and your loved ones articulate what kind of care and support you would like to receive from Applegarth. 

Together, we will help you think about: 

What is important to you 

How you would like to be supported 

What you would like to achieve during your stay 

This will be written into your care plan, which belongs to you, and will be shared with all our staff. 

Together, we will develop a plan which will provide the kind of care and support you want. 

Benefits of Person-Centred Care

The benefits of Person-Centred Care are: 

  • You remain at the centre of your care plan. It is your plan so support will continue in a way you are comfortable and happy with. 
  • You maintain choice and control over your life and the care that is provided. It is important you continue to be involved with decisions so our staff will consult with you every step of the way.
  • Your care will be developed by you, your loved ones and healthcare professionals so that any major decisions that concern your care will be a combined effort.  
  • You will be treated by a consistent team of staff who are familiar with your care plan. Our staff will fit in with your needs and lifestyle to ensure you get the best kind of care and support.
