A Behaviour Support plan gives carers insight into an older person's behaviour and identifies strategies to encourage appropriate behaviours and a quality of life. A Behaviour Support Plan is not just for aged care workers and healthcare professionals, it can be used by families.
The aim of a Behaviour Support Plan is that, when the challenging behaviour occurs, everyone will consistently respond using the strategies agreed on. In that way triggers for behaviour are avoided or minimized and the person can be encouraged to identify triggers, advise when they occur, and use coping strategies.
