What is a care plan and why is it important?

Care planning is described as an easy, accessible way the needs of the individual, their views, interests, preferences and choices, the resources available, and actions by members of the care support team, (including the service user and carer) to meet those needs.

Who should be involved in a care plan review?


Clients and/or their relatives and friends should have a full part to play in the care planning process.


This could mean becoming involved in meetings – either at the actual meeting or in the preparations for it.


Part of your role is to encourage clients and those close to them to play an active part in planning care.


A first step may be to give them basic information about things such as:


  1. Why your organisation is having the meeting

  2. Where and when the meeting will take place

  3. Whether transport will be needed for the client to get to the meeting

  4. Who will attend the meeting?

  5. Why the different people are there

  6. How the client should present their views

  7. What will happen when the client and relative/or friend arrive

  8. What they will be asked to say or do

  9. What happens if they decide to say nothing?


Before any meeting that will discuss your client, you need to:


  1. Make sure everyone involved is aware of the client’s needs and wishes

  2. Circulate any written reports well in advance

  3. What they can do if they disagree with what’s being said

  4. How long the meeting might take

  5. What happens at the end?
