Hi there, here in Australia as of the new changes to our Aged Care Standards put in place on 1st July, 2019, we are now having to write up plans in the first person. How is everyone going with this? I am looking at putting some sort of guide together to help and support my Lifestyle Assistants when writing up these plans. However, does anyone have something already?

This would be a good question to ask at Golden Carers Facebook group

Thanks kerryn

I do not live in Australia that’s why I suggested you ask the question out the golden Carers Facebook group
Maybe you two can exchange ideas??
Good luck to both of you

Hi all,

Have any of you had to submit a self assessment against these new standards in preparation for an up coming Accreditation visit? I'm struggling with this..

Hi Jessie have been doing this for a while converting previous care plans was a big job. but boss gave me help. So basically we write in the first person, for instance instead of Bob likes to shower in the mornings, it's now I like to shower in the mornings, Bob was born 2 Feb 1928.
I was born 2 Feb 1928 my parent are I have one brother.
Also we are doing 3 monthly care plan reviews same. was Bob still enjoying activities on offer, now I am enjoying the activities I choose.
Hope you get the idea.
If I can help further send message.
Regards Brian
