Assisted Living Care Plan
When establishing residency at an assisted living facility, the resident will work with staff and other family members to develop a care plan that will include:
- A plan for medication assistance indicating whether assistance is needed
- Any physical or mental limitations
- Special instructions and needs (such as dietary requirements or restrictions)
- General background information such as hobbies, food preferences, past occupation…This type of information can assist the facility in meeting the personalized needs of the Resident.
The care plan may be modified by the resident at any given time, and they are to be reassessed yearly or if there are any significant changes in their physical, behavioral, or cognitive functions. If the resident is receiving any outside care the facility will document that and help to coordinate the services received with services provided by the facility.
