Upgrading Our Digital Records to Nourish Care
In the last six months, the Care and Support managers at Lisieux Trust have been focused on moving their care documentation and records to a digital platform called Nourish Care.
Nourish Care is a system available on both computer and mobile devices, that enables our managers to create and manage all care plans and records digitally, giving greater visibility into the care and individuals we support.
The system is completely tailored, meaning that the information recorded can be unique to each tenant and resident, providing a detailed and personal account of their requirements. This is important for ensuring all support being provided is personalised to each individual.
Collaboration has been important throughout the whole process. Our tenants and residents have even been involved in meetings and discussions throughout. We’ve talked about what information is recorded, and they’ve provided their feedback on how they would like this to be communicated to the support team using Nourish.
Not only does Nourish provide our team with better information at the point of care, but it has freed up their time to be able to focus on helping our tenants and residents live full and enriched lives full of opportunity. Updating Nourish on a mobile device is a lot quicker than writing everything down on paper records.
Becky Crawford currently manages four of our properties, she has had an integral role in implementing this new system and has only good things to say about Nourish.
Becky said: “As a manager of 4 different properties, it helps and supports me to better communicate with my teams and means that at any point in time, I can check in and see what everyone is up to.
The records are secure, accurate and compliant which means evidencing care is much more manageable. I can analyse and review care being delivered and produce detailed reports on our residents and tenants.
Our main aim is to put the people we support at the heart of our care, and this technology helps us to create custom-made solutions to any issues that may arise so that we can continually deliver the most person-centred care”.
