Care Planning

Staff are very aware that Emerald Terrace is the resident's home and every effort is made to respect residents' privacy and dignity and to meet individual needs.

During the first month a comprehensive assessment of needs and individual preferences is completed.

The assessment information is used to formulate and individualised care plans in consultation with the resident or representative and other health care providers as appropriate. The care plan is regularly evaluated and of course remains confidential, and is only accessible to those staff and healthcare providers providing care.

Medical Care

Ideally, a resident's own doctor will be able to continue to provide care following admission. If the preferred doctor is unable to continue to provide medical care, then we can provide a list of visiting Doctors.

All residents are reviewed by their own nominated Doctor, as required or at least every 8 weeks.

The facility ensures that all nominated Doctors of residents provide an emergency 24 hours a day phone number so that should medical care be required immediately, it can be accessed at anytime. Referral to appropriate specialists is made as required by the attending Doctor.
