In order for the transition to take place from residential care to Semi independent living to independent living with minimal support, there are a number of skills and abilities the resident must be competent of performing. Nua Healthcare will aim to empower the resident in learning how to be competent in independent living with minimal support through a yearly care plan.
The care plan will be carried out on a monthly basis with resident and key worker. Skills in which the resident will need to learn should be incorporated into the care plan targets over a twelve month period. The care plan will be reviewed at the end of each month by the key worker, team leader and regional manager. The review will help identify if the programme is moving too slow or fast for the person’s capabilities. It will also ensure that the capable skills the resident needs to learn are being taught sufficiently.
