What is a daily care plan?
A daily care plan is a written or visual description of activities and events taking place each day. The aim of a care plan is to ensure that the person with dementia has all their basic needs taken care of, gets as much pleasure and stimulation as possible from each day and can see for themselves what each day has in store.
