Care home care plan management that ensures delivery of CQC compliant care of the highest standards is consistent and repeatable

QCS care planning for care homes makes service users fully involved in the process that shapes the care they receive. QCS standardises the approach while enabling the personalised content of each care plan to be maximised.

CQC compliance requires care homes to demonstrate the full involvement of service users and discourage care planning to be carried out remote from the service user. Some of the other challenges here are that service users may be suffering from dementia.

How can QCS help?

QCS care planning for care homes supports care home staff in involving service users in the entire process. The format enables consistent and repeatable care plan management while allowing free-form content writing.

The care plan system is designed by experts to eliminate gaps. It provides fingertip access from both the searchable online resource, which is always current and the printed version, which is ring bound for easy updating.

The format of QCS care home care planning follows the Roper-Logan-Tierney community care planning models, avoiding a medicalised view of the service user. The solution integrates content for care homes managing the increasing trend of dementia.
