When it comes to ensuring the well-being, comfort and happiness of our residents, our care plans play a key role. 

At Jackman’s Lodge, we understand that every individual is unique and their requirements may vary. Our residential care plans help to ensure that your friend or family member has everything they need at all times. 

If you have a loved one who has recently made the move into a care home, you may be wondering what a care plan is and what it could include. We’re here to talk you through the comprehensive support that our care plans provide.

What is care planning?

Care planning is a thoughtful and organised process. It involves assessing and implementing individualised care for residents within a care home. Care planning at Jackman’s Lodge ensures your loved one receives the personalised support they need and deserve. 

Our residential care plans take into account your loved one’s physical and mental needs but also respect their wishes and values. We work alongside our resident’s loved ones to ensure that they live a fulfilled life at our care home in Surrey.

What is a care plan in a care home?

A care plan in a care home is an outline of each resident’s preferences and requirements. At Jackman’s Lodge, we know that all of our residents have different needs, which is why we work hard to establish tailored care plans to ensure their comfort and well-being. Your loved one’s care plan will continuously be updated as their needs change.

Our care plans are a collaborative effort between our compassionate staff, our residents and their families. Beginning with a thorough assessment of your loved one’s care needs, our plans allow us to provide our residents with a continuation of their life at home. 

What is included in a care plan?

What is included in your loved one’s care plan depends on their individual needs. Care plans vary from resident to resident. Some aspects that could be considered in your loved one’s care plan include:


Medical history and medication

Your loved one’s care plan will include their medical history, alongside any medication they are taking. Our nursing staff will make sure your friend or family member receives their medication at the right time and in the correct dosage.

Level of independence

Depending on your loved one’s abilities, their residential care plan could outline the level of support needed for personal hygiene tasks like washing and dressing. It may also note how mobile they are and their wishes for socialising.

Emergency contacts

Your loved one’s care plan will include important personal details. This can include contact information for family members, next of kin or other individuals to be notified in the event of an emergency.

Adaptions to bedroom

For residents with specific mobility needs, the care plan can detail any necessary adaptions to their living space. At our care home in Surrey, we aim to provide your loved one with the support they need but in an independent environment. We will take the time to make sure that your loved one can live independently in their own space, with round-the-clock care available should they need it.

Dietary restrictions

If your loved one has dietary restrictions or preferences, their care plan will specify this so that they receive meals they enjoy. We proudly provide our residents with fresh and nutritious meals, with something tantalising available for every diet.
