The care continuum is the progression of care for a resident. This type of care focuses on opening lines of communication between all care providers who play a role in a resident’s care plan and ensuring that residents can continue to be cared for despite any changes to their requirements.
Providing effective treatment across the continuum requires careful attention to detail as medical and wellbeing care may need to be adapted and therefore coordinated between a variety of providers.
The best way to design these care “pathways” is by assembling multidisciplinary cross-departmental teams. When all of the care providers play a role in decision-making, the collaborative team can more effectively determine next steps for care delivery.
Care providers include, but are not limited to:
When residing in a dual-registered care home, residents benefit from being in a setting, surrounded by professionals who are able to care for a wide range of care needs. Should residents care requirements or progressive conditions change while living in a care home, the home is able to quickly respond, amend the care plan to reflect the current medical requirements. Residents living in dual-registered care homes are able to settle and feel assured knowing their stay is long-term and feel confident in consistent and familiar surroundings.
Continuum of care ensures that residents have the correct kind of care for different medical conditions or issues that occur over a span of years. It ensures that residents continue receiving treatment to manage symptoms or have treatment plans adjusted as necessary; care plans are adaptable and adjusting accordingly, in line with current needs. Adaptable care plans cover both a change in medical needs as well as progressive care.
Open lines of communication, regular assessments and regular feedback to all parties involves, ensures that the person leading the care is in a position to be able to hold their teams accountable.
The primary benefit of 24-hour care is having professional assistance day and night, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
