Leaving a good note on check-out
Notes are a great way to communicate directly with your Care Manager. A note is designed to provide clear timely communication about the Member, their schedule or the visit.
As a Helper, you have special insight into the day-to-day lives of the Members you help. Any information you share can help make a huge impact in a Member’s life and ongoing care.
A change, even a small one, can be an early indicator of a bigger problem. We want to know about any changes you’ve noticed so we know if there’s anything else we can do as a team to better support a member.
If the matter is urgent (needs to be addressed immediately or within the next work day) or it posses a risk to the service a Member has requesting or is expecting then please contact the Care Manager immediately and directly via mobile phone. Notes may not be read for a couple of days.
You are also most welcome to leave a note providing more general feedback and comments which do not require action, we love getting your notes!
