Your Care Plan

Participate in the development of your care plan.

Your care plan will be flexible, tailored to meet your needs, and support your preferences.

Care planning is essential to providing high-quality care. At Dove Healthcare - Wissota Health & Regional Vent Center, our highly skilled professionals take the time to really get to know you. Your care plan:

  • Focuses on you and is directed by you
  • Outlines the care you need to obtain and maintain optimal physical, mental, and social health
  • Identifies problems, suggests specific actions, and recommends any necessary support
  • Helps staff get to know you and understand how to best provide your care

Regular Reviews of Your Care

You and your family, along with your multi-disciplinary care team, will meet regularly to review your care plan. All aspects of your care will be discussed, including your nursing, therapeutic, nutritional, recreational, and spiritual needs. Your family's busy schedule can be easily accommodated through flexible scheduling or telephone conferencing.
