Upon admission to a care facility an Activity Assessment and Care Plan should be completed for the resident.  It is very important to establish and document activity plans for new residents.

An Activity Assessment may be required by the licensing agency.  The Resident Activity Interest Form was designed to give an overall idea of many areas that might be of interest to the resident. Activity Assessment & Care Plan

The normal care standard is for the residential care home or assisted living facility to have an ongoing care plan.  Significant changes in a resident's physical, social, and mental condition need to be documented and brought to the attention of the attending physician, other health service providers and the responsible party so that the care plan adjusted accordingly to the resident's needs.  

All direct care staff involved with that resident should have access to the care plan.  Family members and the residents' responsible parties should participate in the Appraisal Needs and Service Plan, which specify what the plans of care are for that resident.

Once we have completed the assessment process then we can create a plan of care.

This article addresses the importance of assessing residents' basic mental traits prior to admission in a Care Facility.  
A small mental health section is included on the Pre-Admission Appraisal Assessment Form.  If the answers received indicate the prospective resident has some confusion or other mental problems, the Mental Assessment Questionnaire and Mini-Mental Worksheet should be completed.  These forms should give the person doing the assessment a basic history of the mental health of the potential resident as well as an idea of what kind of observation services the resident will need.  If the provider takes residents who are confused or who have some degree of mental illness this type of information is essential. 
Residents who have a history of being sexually inappropriate or assaultive are often difficult to place.  For this reason Assessing Basic Mental Traits
