There are many different kinds of care plans in use across community health care, each of them has the same three purposes:
• to ensure that the participant gets the same care regardless of who is providing the care
• to ensure that the care given is recorded accurately & communicated
• to support the participant to identify & manage their condition
Some plans are very simple and focus on the essentials of care – nutrition, mobility, sleeping, oral care and personal hygiene; while others can be very detailed and might include conditions like management of, diabetes, epilepsy, falls prevention, psychological needs, recording of clinical signs.
