We aim to deliver all our support based on each person’s communication methods as detailed in each person’s communication passport or profiles. Records are completed for each support and changes to the individual’s physical and health needs. We liaise with any professionals in relation to each need such as Speech and Language Therapists’ (SALT), Occupational Therapists (OT). This is through reporting and maintaining care records in line with care plans which are reviewed every 6 months as a general principle of review or as and when changes are needed to be communicated to other parties. These will help with any further assessments or decisions on the changes to the person’s health needs.
Systems are available for the Medication ordering through a local pharmacy which will include the storage and management of each person’s medication, with audits completed by the company’s quality assurance Manager either through spot checks or every 3 months in line with Care Quality Commission’s safe management and storage of medication guidelines.
Consideration is made for each person's capacity of management of their medication with reviews of risk assessments done as and when changes are observed. Safe handling of medication using a lockable steel safe are done on each person’s medication based on risk assessments to help those who lack capacity to manage their medication independently.
