My Life Plan

CD-ROM

Price: £145.00 excl. VAT
A new interactive resource designed specifically for Person Centred Planning using the latest interactive software techniques, to help people talk about their lives, plan meetings and record agreed actions to monitor outcomes.
Author(s): Les Cowan, Andy Bradley, Kirsty Murray
Good practice has always meant involving adults with learning disabilities in plans for their future and gearing services to an individual's needs and wishes. With current legislation, Government policy now recommends that every adult with a learning disability who wants a person centred plan should be able to have one and this should be the main support approach.

My Life Plan is a new interactive resource designed specifically for Person Centred Planning using the latest interactive software techniques. The overall aim is to help people talk about their lives, plan meetings and record agreed actions to monitor outcomes.

My Life Plan opens with an interactive town map. Clicking on buildings in the town allows users to choose what they want to talk about in 19 interactive sections. Key topics include Work, Communication, Important People, Health and Lifelong Learning. Each section uses a mixture of fill in fields, on screen activities, printable worksheets and training materials to cover issues of identity, choice, day-to-day support and future planning.

To aid in recording and expressing important relationships and memories, the Photo Gallery allows import of digital images from any picture viewing software. All data can be saved for future use and printed both as individual screens or compact reports.

Developed in collaboration with specialist input from Person Centred Planning practice, social work, social care education and occupational therapy, My Life Plan brings together professional expertise, interactive technologies and proven design and functionality. This innovative resource makes an exciting addition to the tools available to enable people with learning disabilities speak up about their lives.

Running directly from CD without permanently installing on computer, My Life Plan can be used with any number of individuals in many different locations. Full instructions included.

Andy Bradley’s belief is that we must elevate the status of care giving. Andy created Frameworks 4 Change in 2004, having spent part of his childhood living in a care home for people with dementia. He went on to give hands-on support to people with profound learning disabilities and older people. Andy and the team at Frameworks 4 Change work hard every day to ‘create and sustain consistently compassionate care’ in a range of environments including residential care, domiciliary care and hospitals. The habit-building programmes that Andy and the team now facilitate are seeing dramatic results with continuous improvements to care and staff teams feeling valued and appreciated. He is currently working with the NHS and a range of care provider organisations to embed new cultures of compassion.

Andy was recently recognised as one of ‘Britain’s New Radicals’ by The Observer newspaper and NESTA, and his work on mindfulness and compassion in healthcare has been covered by the BBC, ITV and The Independent. Andy is a speaker for TEDX and is regularly asked to present on creating compassionate communities in which all belong. Andy sees Health and Social Care through the lens of compassion and imagines a new paradigm in which we all see ourselves as belonging to consistently compassionate communities in which care is given as part of a good life.
