Getting Started with Homecare

What's a Patient Care Plan?

If the assessment shows the client is a home care candidate, our Director of Patient Services will contact the person's physician to request written doctor's orders, a requirement in NYS. These orders detail all necessary medical concerns and, along with the assessment notes, form the basis of the Patient Care Plan. The Patient Care Plan is a clear listing of the duties to be performed by the aide for the patient. Every Patient Care Plan is tailored to the needs of the individual and must be followed, to the letter, by the aide. If the doctor's orders are revised, new medications issued or a change in condition observed, the Care Plan will be modified by our nurses.
