Supporting people living with learning disabilities can be a complex operation. There are a lot of aspects to consider, plus there is not one single approach to suit everyone involved. Care plans for people living with learning difficulties needs to be built with an element of flexibility in them, as situations can change rapidly. Support needs to be tailored and designed to help promote independence as much as possible. Once in place, care plans must be carefully monitored to ensure they are offering the person the best possible care for their individual needs. Outcomes and Milestones promote a way to focus care and support.
Attendance tracking software
In pre-digital days, care home staff routinely used manual clock-in systems and signing in sheets to record their comings and goings. Not only was this cumbersome and time consuming, it was also open to abuse and misunderstandings. Switching to a digital clocking in system removes the ambiguity and produces an accurate, central record for attendance management, payroll and security functions. Using attendance tracking software also helps people to analyse patterns in staff movements and timings of shifts. This enables more effective planning to be put in place and helps management to spot any problems or concerns before they become more serious.
Facial recognition software for clocking in
Our attendance tracking and clocking-in software uses the latest in facial recognition software to record staff movement at the start and end of shifts. This limits physical contact with the clocking-in device to aid hygiene management and eliminate cross infection. It also does away with the need for staff to keep electronic fobs on them at all times that can be lost or stolen. The tracking software also links directly to HR functionality that monitors attendance, breaktimes, sickness and lateness. The facial recognition software for staff clocking in works separately to visitor entry procedures, making the process quick and easy.
Intuitive, informed care
Care Vision’s care management software offers many benefits to professionals supporting people living with learning disabilities. Accurate, detailed reports ensure that all treatment and interaction with people is recorded properly and used to inform their ongoing care and support. An eMAR system records medications and therapies correctly, while the electronic visitors book keeps track of external care providers and supporting friends and families who should be involved in any future decisions. Meal planning, excursion planning and staff rota functions enable meals and activities to go ahead as needed. HR, payroll and staff clocking in systems enable those being cared for to be properly looked after by staff who know when they are due to work and have been remunerated appropriately.
