Your Goals Your Direct Care

We understand that you are the best expert in your own life and we want to empower and support you to make informed decisions about your healthcare. We do this is by working with you to set your own goals for your health and wellbeing.  By listening to your values, needs and priorities, we can understand what’s important to you and start to talk about how best to support you to reach your goals.

A Goal Directed Care Plan aims to develop a plan for the best care for you by identifying:

  • Goals that are meaningful and important to you, your family and/or your carer
  • The service/s, referrals and connections required
  • Any interventions that may be required
  • A timeline with start and end point and including reviews along the way
  • Other agencies which may help you achieve your goals
  • Who you want to be involved in your planning decisions
  • Whether you consent to your sharing information appropriately
