Activities and Social Services: Writing CAAs and Individualized Care Plans

The Activity and Social Service Professional’s role goes beyond just the completion of the MDS 3.0. This session focuses on the crucial role that the development and use of CAAs (Care Area Assessments) has on each individual’s Quality of Life and Quality of Care, and the provision of person-centered/directed care. Writing "CAA" content that is then used to create individualized and interdisciplinary care plans will be demonstrated, discussed, and practiced. CATs and CAAs for Psychosocial Well-Being, Behavioral Symptoms, Activities, and Return to Community Referral will be addressed.
