Our approach is based around the three E's - ensure, enhance, exceed

Our services are designed to complement and enhance care that is already in place. We implement a 0-10 scoring system for each person we work with, to enable us to track improvements in their health and wellbeing, and react quickly when adjustments are needed.

Ensure, Enhance, Exceed

Ensure - making sure the right care is in place



When basic needs are ensured, a client can score a maximum of five. What Plan with Care does to deliver this is look at what care is already being provided and make recommendations for adjustments if necessary.

We understand that solicitors often feel a responsibility and pressure to address health and wellbeing, but this doesn’t fall into their remit when only providing power of attorney for financial and property. The result is often that only basic needs will be met, and we know even that can take a lot of time.

Enhance - improving quality of life



When psychological needs are being fulfilled, wellbeing is enhanced and the client can attain up to eight. What Plan with Care does to deliver this is drill down into what will improve the quality of life for the individual. What do they love, what are their interests, what makes them tick? Then we facilitate this.

For the solicitors Plan with Care works with, our services enhance the offering they provide to their clients and relieves the pressure they often feel, as we are the ones ensuring both their clients basic and psychological needs are met. The team effort suddenly sees loved ones thriving in the upper ranges of our scoring systems, rather than languishing at the bottom.

Exceed - going beyond expectations



Achieving the highest score is when the self-fulfilment needs are being met and expectations are exceeded by enabling outcomes not thought possible. This does depend on the health and interests of the people we support, but in the past we have enabled clients to star in their own movie (with dementia specialist actors) and gone as far as organising rafting trips in Scotland. 


We naturally want as many of the people we work with to score as near to ten as possible, but this can’t be done without holistic support from many different services. By working together with solicitors, we can facilitate these services, complementing your service further.

How Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs explains how we work

Maslow’s model reflects the way we work and, specifically, our ‘three E’ approach – ensure, enhance, exceed. Certain needs have to be met at one level, before moving onto the next level. The more needs that are met, the more satisfied a person will be. This is where Plan with Care can help families, friends, solicitors – and, most importantly, the individuals themselves.
