Key Contract Terms - Admission, Occupancy, Termination of Contract.
When people move in, they have a four week trial period built into their contract of admission to decide whether "this is the place for them". This provides an opportunity for staff to get to know the individual resident and their family and to identify their wants and preferred way of living, e.g. the time they like to get up in the morning and go to bed at night.
During this period the persons care and support requiremnets are also assessed of any risk to which the resident or staff may be exposed as a result of making their own decisions. It also includes discussion, with the agreement of the residents, with any relative or representatives who may be involved about the person's care needs and plans. The aim is to achieve a plan of care with which everyone involved is happy.
