Care plan management for supported living that provides person-centred care planning and helps by safeguarding against adult abuse and financial abuse – ‘mate crimes’

Increasingly, care planning for providing CQC compliant supported living services needs to adapt to changing trends. QCS ensures that the increasing occurrence of dementia that is accompanying the trend for service users living longer is fully factored into the care planning process.

Providing supported living care services is often more variable than other types of care. There is a strong need to disseminate information and training material over several sites where supported living services are delivered.

How can QCS help?

QCS enables supported living staff operating in different locations to standardise practice across all operational sites so that care planning activity is consistent. Care plan formats support continuity of care by promoting the easy transfer of information between carers that attend at different times.

QCS resources are online and printed modular manuals. The searchable, always up to date online component easily enables staff across multiple sites to share and refer to training materials as well as providing logging that individuals have carried out policy review or reading as directed.

QCS provides care plan management for supported living in different versions to accommodate the large range of services. This prevents short or low intensity services from being overwhelmed by unnecessary record keeping.
