We fully assess each individual every 3 months, through on-going assessments, monitoring and reviews. Recovery is measured in terms of improved cognitive functioning, physical ability and quality of life. It is important to emphasise that around 75% of this group of people could have the chance of some recovery if they are identified at an early stage and appropriate intervention offered.
The specific skill areas we consider and assess are;
Personal Hygiene & Self Care
Social Development Skills
Personal Mobility & Safety Skills
Household Living Skills
We look and review how far an individual has come in relation to undertaking tasks independently or if they still assistance by 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 to ‘Step 3’ where skills learnt can be consistently used with little or no assistance. Through our own care agency we are able to offer continued support to an individual if they progress enough to live more independently in the wider community.
ARBD holds many challenges for everyone concerned. We continue to expand our knowledge and understanding of the condition by continuous working with this client group, training and development. By doing so we are able to provide services that will more effectively improve the lives of those affected by it.
