Designed by care home owners, CareDocs offers all the features that you'll need to ensure the smooth running of your Care Home. Care planning is at the heart of CareDocs and as well as providing a quick and easy way to carry out comprehensive assessments, you'll be able to produce fully personalised care plans in a matter of minutes.
There's a host of other features that will simplify your day-to-day responsibilities, reduce the need for many paper records and allow you to monitor outstanding tasks at a glance.
So, if you're looking for a way to simplify your care planning and make it easier to keep your care plans up to date, then CareDocs could be the solution you're looking for.
We understand that making the move to computerised care recording can be a daunting prospect and so we do much more than just provide the software.
Our subscription packages include all the computers to run CareDocs effciently. We'll install them and make sure that they work just as you want them to - any hardware problems are our responsibility. You'll also have full use of our 24/7 technical support team and any problems will be sorted as quickly as possible.
You'll also benefit from initial on-site training and we'll support you on an ongoing basis with a variety of training options available.
Every care home has its own way of working but it's our aim to help every customer get the maximum benefit from their CareDocs system.

CareDocs has been designed by Care Home owners for Care Homes.
Used in over 500 Care Homes, CareDocs is an integrated solution for care planning and care home management.
Person-centred care plans are at the heart of CareDocs and they can be compiled quickly - and subsequently updated - with the minimum of effort.
Assessments are comprehensively structured so that no aspect is missed and care plans are created from an assessment in a matter of minutes.
CareDocs holds every personal detail about your residents - past and present - with each resident having their own care file.
All the information is filed under logical categories so you'll be able to find whatever you're looking for quickly and easily. Updating the information is a very simple process - even for inexperienced computer users.
A unique feature is the emergency admission pack which is available for each resident. With one click you can print a pack that contains all the important information you need to provide when a resident is admitted to hospital.
An important aspect of the CareDocs system is that managers have complete control over what information can be accessed and by whom.
Once staff have been added to the system, each of them is given a level of access appropriate to their job role and this limits the features available to them. Standard job role templates are instantly available so staff can be given a user account quickly and easily. Specific needs can be catered for as all the access settings can be individually tailored by managers.
Supervisions and training records can be maintained and a timesheet function allows staff to record their working hours. All the information - including a training matrix and training review report - can be printed or simply stored electronically within the CareDocs system.
You can monitor the status of all day-to-day tasks at a glance.
Managers have immediate access to all the information they need to ensure important tasks are not overlooked or missed, saving time and resources.
CareDocs can monitor staff and residents' records and also ensure that equipment servicing schedules and daily checks are completed on time. All mandatory information can be stored and retrieved with ease and you can also keep track of home events.
You can be confident that, when you have an inspection, all crucial information will be at your fingertips and can be printed within seconds.
If you would like to see CareDocs for yourself, we have stands at many local and national care shows around the country throughout the year.
We will be at the Wiltshire & Swindon Care Skills Partnership at The Alexandra House Conference Centre, Wroughton on 1st December.

"CareDocs has saved us lots of time, effort and stress in terms of recording, reminders and important messages being communicated to staff and residents alike.
The beauty of CareDocs is that it will allow you to monitor everything without having to trek through masses of paperwork and folders – making it easy to find information when you need it.
CareDocs is arguably one of the best investments the Home has made and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone thinking of changing from paperwork to a computer management system.
The service team are extremely friendly and always willing to help. Couldn't ask for more from them."
Abbas Abdeali - Deputy Manager, Eton House
"On short notice you managed to have our desktop personalised and delivered before the CQC site visit. We had the CQC site visit last week. The Inspector was very impressed with the CareDocs system. All the questions the Inspector had relating to fully personalised care plans- the CareDocs system was the answer.
It was a great feeling as I and my colleagues confidently showed the Inspector how the system works to ensure personalisation. We got our registration!"
Phillip Tuso - Registered Manager
"I found this a very useful comprehensive care planning system.
What I have seen is as the care plans develop, they become more personalised and hold more information about the person which greatly assists staff in their day to day delivery of care.
The information is easily analysed and accessible and I particularly like the monitoring aspect."
Jan Foley - Independent Health and Social Care Consultant
"Just letting you know how impressed I am with the whole Caredocs programe... once you know your way around the system it's fantastic, every health professional that sees me using it is impressed by the amount of information I can pull up.
I wouldn't want to work anywhere that doesn't have it!"
Eva - Registered Manager
"Our Manager Denise has gone from a computer Newbie to a true professional, as far as the new system has gone she has taken to it with ease, numerous comments have been made about the system by other professionals as well as Denise's talent for wording them in the first person as required now.
Many thanks for all your help in the early days of the setting up of the system, don't know how we managed before CareDocs came along."
Joan Evans - Care Home Owner
