Carrying out a review
Mr D. has been advised that during his time in Mason St. 4 weekly reviews of his progress will take place. He was given a review calendar with the first 3 review dates detailed and a basic idea of how this takes place and informed that a member of the appropriate housing team will be present plus anyone else he would like to be present including a family member or any key individuals involved in his care.
Approximately two weeks before the review date planning must begin. Mr D. is advised of this and I asked him if there was anybody he would like to be invited to his review (COP 3.1). Mr D. has a social worker but both parties were happy that a copy of the review would be given to her and that she did not need to ...view middle of the document...
Myself and MrD. have known each other for 4 weeks now and we have built up a relationship and I have demonstrated to him my honesty and trustworthiness (COP 2.1) and he has become comfortable in my company and this helps him to feel more relaxed about the review.
Certain pieces of paperwork are also completed before the review takes place which are all aimed at monitoring Mr D’s progress. My outcomes are completed by Mr D which monitors general mental health and wellbeing. The day before the review myself and Mr D completed a second strength based assessment at which point we monitor progress on his goals pertaining to each individual support plan. This progress is agreed and recorded and it is now time to carry out a pre-review where I talk and agree with Mr D what is, and importantly what is not to be, discussed at the review (COP 2.3). For example Mr D. has issues from his childhood that are very private and we are both very clear on what is to be discussed pertaining to this and we go over and discuss all his support plans.
Mr B., MrD’ housing officer, myself and Mr D, attend review. With permission from Mr D we are also joined by Mr M, who is Mr D’ co-key worker who is a new member of staff and this is also his first experience of a review. After introductions I give Mr B. a general outline of MrD’ background before moving into Mason St and we then discuss all of MrD. ’ support plans as a group.
Shortly afterwards I write an account of the review which Mr D and my line manager okay before printing and signatures are added. Mr D is given a copy for himself and copies are arranged for all key people. All review paperwork is added to Mr D’ files and returned to locked cabinet to ensure confidentiality.
