  3. Oral Care
  4. Skin Care (Full baths or showers are scheduled for each resident as required based on their individual skin care plan.)
  5. Recreation Care Plan
  6. Pain Assessment & Management

  8. REAB – This stands for Responding to Excessive and Agitated Behaviours. This category guides staff on how to approach and direct residents who are unable to control their inappropriate and challenging behaviours.

Your care plan will promote your participation in your own care based on your unique abilities and maintaining as much independence as possible. When appropriate, self – care techniques will be included. For example a Care Plan may include assisting you to prepare your toothbrush and encouraging you to brush your own teeth. You Care Plan will be discussed with you and/or substitute decision maker/family member. In this way we encourage your participation in the development and decision making required and ensure the goals of your care plan are yours.   The Dietitian will visit you to:
