Care Assessments

What are Care Assessments?

Care Assessments are an important feature used to encourage communication between the care provider and the resident. By asking the right questions, you and your residents can build a mutually accepted person-centred Care Plan that caters to all aspects of day-to-day living.

How are Care Assessments used?

Our comprehensive care Assessment feature helps you get to know your residents like never before. Developed by care home owners, CareDocs puts the people in your care at the heart of your service by giving them a voice. And that process starts with the Assessment. 

It’s simple to complete but that doesn’t mean we use shortcuts. We encourage you to add as much information as possible because the more tailored your Care Plans are, the more your residents will benefit from a person-centred care service.

There are over 20 separate care assessment sections, including:

  • Breathing
  • Communication
  • Consent to care and treatment
  • Continence
  • Dementia
  • End of life care
  • Environmental control
  • Evacuation risk assessment
  • Last wishes
  • MCA / Legal Status / DoL
  • Medication
  • Mental health
  • Mobility
  • Night care
  • Nutrition & hydration
  • Oral health
  • Overall health
  • Personal care
  • Personal history
  • Relationships and sexuality
  • Safeguarding
  • Skin integrity

Each section is made up of various sub-sections to ensure every aspect of your residents’ day-to-day care needs are accounted for. Where applicable, we have provided layman’s terms descriptions for answers to help your residents make an informed decision.

What benefits do Care Assessments provide?

General communication and understanding the needs of the people in your care go along way to securing happy and empowered residents. Care Assessments provide a platform for your residents to be heard and is the first step in creating a Care Plan, which brings its own benefits.

Who benefits from Care Assessments?

Your care staff will progress naturally through the assessments depending on the previous answers provided by your resident, ensuring each Assessment is unique and tailored to the needs of that individual. Our care experts have created and mapped out the Assessment questions for you. This is an efficient, time-saving process, eliminating hours of admin work. 

Using CareDocs Cloud Portal, they can be performed from any location with the use of a laptop or mobile device where an internet connection is present.

The outstanding support from the CareDocs team is fantastic
There has been a genuine willingness to use CareDocs as the care staff could really see the benefit of using it. I was immediately struck by the intuitive way in which it had been built, & the breadth of the functionality it supported. The outstanding support from the CareDocs team is fantastic.
