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.

    This was the first time that I have had any communication with the customer care team, and I must say that the service was first class. Kate, the customer care executive, was extremely knowledgeable and guided us around the system in a most "user friendly" way. During the course of our discussions, Kate became the first person to actually demonstrate to us the value of the QCS system, revealing many aspects of the system's capabilities of we had previously been… Richard

    I have received my official letter of Registration from the CQC today. I could not have done any of this without the beautiful TINA HALL. She made me feel like I was the only person that she was helping which I know is far from true! She never tired from my 'daft' questions when I was having 'blonde' moments. She reassured me and gave me confidence when I was ready to throw in the towel! Tina was patient, extremely helpful… Emma Howarth - Able Care Huddersfield

Hi Sheila, can a DOLs be applied for if someone is in long term respite in a residential care home ?
