Creating your care plan

Radfield Home Care Assessment Process

Every situation is different and care needs are individual. Therefore, at Radfield Home Care, we have a process to ensure that we create the best care plan for you that is tailor made based on your own individual needs, preferences and wishes.

The stages of creating your care plan are as follows:

  1. We will contact you by phone after your initial enquiry, to first understand what the need is.
  2. We arrange a visit in your home so that we can find out what your needs are and how we can help you. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions and you may wish to have a family member or friend present.
  3. We create a unique care plan for your specific needs. You then review the care plan and can make adjustments before signing. Your carers use this plan so that you receive the exact care, delivered as you want it.
  4. You sign and agree the care plan. The plan is always in your home and you can make changes to it at any time.
  5. We agree to start care when you want us to start.
  6. Care begins. Your new carers will follow the initial care plan and if you have any agreed adjustments, they will inform the office and the plan will be amended.
  7. Ongoing review of care. Small changes and adjustments to your care are constantly monitored. For any significant changes, we hold a face-to-face meeting with yourself so that your care needs are always being met in the best way for you.

Responsive to feedback

We pride ourselves on the speed of responding to issues or feedback that requires changes. Our focus is that you are feeling well looked after and that your needs are being met. We send out a service feedback questionnaire every six months but feedback can be given at any time. We also extend this courtesy to our carers, so that they always feel well supported and enabled to give the best care.
