Treatment Planning

A plan for quality of life. A plan for progress.

Treatment planning at Courtyard Manor of Wixom, Michigan With more than 20 years of experience, we’ve developed a thorough treatment program to assess, establish goals to improve functioning and closely monitor the progress of each resident. As always, the goal is to improve each person’s quality of life and help them achieve their highest level of functioning.

Here’s how it works:

Pre-assessment
We encourage potential residents to visit and stay for awhile to get a feel for Courtyard Manor of Wixom. Prior to admission, we assess each potential resident to determine how well we can meet their unique needs and identify specific resources they'll need.

Family Involvement
We welcome and encourage as much family involvement as possible in your relative's treatment planning process. Besides being asked to participate in quarterly treatment planning meetings, we encourage family/guardians to contact our staff throughout the week with any questions about a resident's treatment and progress. Most importantly, we have an open-door policy and welcome family/guardians who drop in at any time.

Assessments at Admission
At admission, we develop a clinical assessment to further identify each person's specific needs, services and interventions that will help our new resident achieve their individualized goals.

These assessments include:

We also conduct risk assessments to evaluate the potential for falls, violence, suicide, smoking and elopement. From there, we use a summary of these assessments to develop each new resident's individualized Treatment Plan and Care Guide.

Person-Centered Planning
Soon after admission, we encourage residents to identify their hopes, dreams and personal goals. This process is what we call Person-Centered Planning, and it's at the core of our Treatment Planning Process. All Treatment Plans, including Individual Plans of Service, are based on our residents' own goals. From there, we identify specific interventions (or steps) to help residents move toward realizing their aspirations.

Case Management
Upon admittance, each resident is assigned a case manager, who serves as their advocate and "go to" person, overseeing that person's individual care.

Individual and Group Therapy
Each resident receives a minimum of 60 minutes of individual/group therapy each month, right here at Courtyard Manor.

Early Intervention/Treatment Planning
Our Treatment Team includes our psychiatrist, RN, MSW and LPN. They meet weekly to review Treatment Plans, evaluate residents' progress and identify Treatment Plan updates, including medication adjustments and specific interventions. Emergency meetings with residents allow us to quickly intervene when issues arise to prevent relapse and/or re-hospitalization.

Behavior Modification
We have learned the power of helping residents change negative behavior with positive reinforcement. Our Behavior Management Committee includes our psychiatrist, RN, MSW and psychologist. They meet regularly to develop personalized plans to modify and eliminate target behaviors that interfere with each resident's success. The resident and all staff have input to these plans.

Medication Reviews with Psychiatrist
Virtually every month, our psychiatrist reviews each resident's medication on-site, consulting with staff, observing and speaking with residents on a one-to-one basis, giving them the opportunity to provide first-hand feedback.

Medical Status Reviews with Internal Medicine Doctor
Each quarter, all residents (healthy and otherwise) are examined on site by our on-staff internist. Residents can be seen more often, as required.

Treatment Planning Meetings
Our Treatment Team meets quarterly to discuss each person’s Treatment Plan and evaluate progress. Residents routinely participate in these sessions, and family members/guardians are invited and often participate.

Annual Assessments
We also complete assessments once a year for each resident and provide our direct care staff with updated Care Guides and Risk Assessment Summaries to help them deliver appropriate care and services to each individual.

Discharge/Transition Planning
Each year, many of our people progress enough to move into more independent living. From the moment residents come to live with us, we assess the skills they'll need in order to move on, establishing discharge criteria which are updated every 90 days. Transition plans, developed throughout the residents' stay, identify specific criteria from the resident's and treatment team's perspectives that would facilitate their move to another level of care.
