Care Planning is diligent with a meticulous attention to detail. Residents and, where appropriate, representatives / families are encouraged to be involved in the process with the information they are able to share with us forming the foundations of their life in Mendip Lodge.

Care Plans can be lengthy documents but the more information we have the better we are able to tailor and individualise a person's care, respecting their current and possibly, previous, wishes. Made up of different sections the Care Plan will show how and when a person would like to have their care in addition to any risks being identified, and through assessment, minimised or eliminated. Details of any equipment to be used is included and all staff are trained to use this. With consent, this information may be shared with other professionals to ensure a "pathway" to manage a particular illness, condition or requirement has the best possible outcome.
