Planning care actions can help make sure residents receive the support they need in a timely manner, meaning that assistance where needed is available and can reduce the risk of resident falls because their needs are not being met. Other planned actions include checking equipment or checking the condition of footwear.
Instructions, including those about moving and handling, are communicated to the care team on the mobile devices as part of the care interactions they are recording.
Making this information available at the point of care means that support can be provided in line with the care plan and any preferences they have. This encourages safe working practices and safe mobilisation methods used.
Alerts users of any risks that a resident might face; including if there is a high risk of falling.
Another key ingredient to reducing frailty and reducing risk of fall is to maintain impact exercise.
The Care App allows users to record the types of exercise, duration and engagement levels – including exercise types, such as ankle strengthening.
