Person Centred Care is at the heart of what we do.
There are many different emotions an indiviual may feel should they receive a diagnosis of a life changing illness, condition or disease. Being told they may one day depend on support from others, whether it be from family, care staff, nurses or doctors is probably one of the hardest things an individual can hear. The emotional challenges for everyone involved will have a massive impact. Should an individual require short or long-term future care then it is vital that their voice will always be heard. Preparing4Care ensures that an individual’s wishes are incorporated into any proposed care and support plan, and will make the transition into the care system that little bit easier.
Preparing4Care is simple to use, not only will you be able to build your Personal Reference Guide but will also find useful information about Health Care Providers, associated services and industry news.
