Fee reducing structure for commissioners of care
We have developed a positive and flexible approach working with commissioners of care to provide care solutions that also provide value for money.
We follow a 3 step process which allows us to assess how residents manage everyday life skills. We visit each individual prior to them coming into the home and fully assess their needs in great detail. Providing we can meet their needs, together with them we formulate a care plan including full risk assessments that are regularly updated.
After three months, or sooner if required, we review the individual’s assessments to date, using monitoring tools to chart their progress. We look and review how far an individual has come in relation to undertaking tasks independently or if they still require assistance from a support worker.
We are then able to adjust their support plan accordingly to match their level of independence.
The idea is to move them from ‘Step 1’ – requiring substantial support (please see diagram below), to ‘Step 3’ where skills learnt can be consistently managed independently with little or no support. If a resident is able to respond to the 3 step process and starts to show progress, then we will look at reducing the weekly fee.
