You’ll find a section within a client’s profile that lists a number of assessments that can be recorded within CareLineLive.

We’ve chosen to focus on nutrition, fluid, and mental health assessments to start with. The best way to get familiar with the assessments is to load them up and start poking around! A description of each of the assessments has been included below.

Assessments aren’t currently visible within the carer app.

Diet & Fluid Assessment

  • Dietary needs

    • Diet

    • Food preparation

Observations

When a carer is recording a meal observation through the app, they will have the option to pick from one of the client’s set meals or start from scratch.

If a set meal is selected the meal’s components will be copied into the observation, along with any nutritional information that may have been logged.

Nutritional information

We allow nutritional information to be recorded, but do not currently surface the information. We plan to provide reporting functions that will allow you better insight into a client’s diet.

It’s completely optional to include nutritional information, however you may find it proves useful for certain service users.

 

Meal Times

Here you’re able to give guidance as to how the client would like their meals. We group meals into 4 times: Morning, Lunch, Tea, Dinner. The times of these bands can be adjusted in Settings → Calendar → Time of Day.

You can include instructions specific to that time of day, the preferred time for the meal (e.g. between 8am and 9am), if any support is required for the meal, and location preferences (e.g. in their favourite armchair, or sat at the dining table).
