Introduction

Unit 9- Values and Planning in Social Care. P2? Identify the process and assessment tools involved in planning support for individuals with different needs who use social services M2- Describe how three key professionals could be involved in planning support for individuals. In this assignment I will be identifying the processed and assessment tools involved in planning support for individuals with different needs who use social service. I will also be describing how three key professionals could be involved in planning support for individuals. The first stage in the cycle of assessment and planning is the referral in which either the individual or a professional refers you to a specialist. E.g. Physiotherapist or counsellor. The holistic assessment includes assessing the needs and preferences taken on by the professional by using assessment tools and working closely with the individual. Identifying current provisions by the professional identifying the resources required to meet individual?s needs Care plan targets are made to be achieved and professional identifies an individual that can support and empower the client by using appropriate care and ensuring that targets are met.

The assessment tools Assessment tools are resources that are used to back-up the support planning process which assists to build a holistic picture of individual?s needs. After the individuals personal details are logged as assessment can be done to identify suitable care and support. The assessment tools are as follows: 1. Checklist 2. Forms 3. Diary of the professional 4. Questions 5. Records of incidents 6. Observations 7. Personal histories 8. Flowcharts 9. Discussions In Mr Farsal?s case study, it mentions that he had suffered from an accident and was seriously injured. The three key professionals I will be writing about in this essay are: 1. GP 2. Social Worker 3. Counsellor Mr Farsal has gone to his local GP, this is where his injuries were diagnosed by his general practitioner, Mr Farsal?s GP is also the place where he will get the efficient solutions to overcome his injuries. Mr Farsal?s GP can then refer him to appropriate professionals. For example, Mr Farsal may be referred to a social worker in order to care for his physical needs. He may also be referred to a counsellor, where he can confide and have an individual to talk to, which could then lead him to finding answers to overcome the barriers that he may have in his present life. ...read more.

Conclusion

Maureen?s health visitor will have the ability, as she has been given the right training to take care of Maureen?s holistic needs. Maureen?s health visitor can empower her by involving her in making decisions on making her support plan, this can higher Maureen?s self-esteem. Having her health visitor around, she may see her as a friend rather than her nurse, this could potentially lead her in to confiding in her health visitor. In a way, her health visitor can ne her skilled helper and almost counsel her. In her free time she may want to go to the library to read books, go church on Sundays or even stay at home and play board games. Lastly, Maureen?s GP may have referred her to an optician to get her eyes tested and glasses or contact lenses. The optician has the responsibility of ensuring that Maureen receives appropriate services in order to get her the right strength of lenses. Maureen may feel as though she is getting old and there is nothing she can do to prevent these illnesses which may affect her self-esteem. In order for Maureen to feel better about getting glasses, her optician should be aware of her choices and even empower her to choose the frames she wants for her lenses or if she would opt for contact lenses instead. ...read more.
