Informal Care Scan
The Informal Care Scan, an instrument for professionals in care and welfare, is intended to help those in need of care and caregivers to map out a (informal care) network, which focuses attention on the strengths and weaknesses of that network. The scan provides visual aides that help in structuring all information across the network. Information about the network is important because caregiving often goes further than merely contact between a single client and a single caregiver. More people are often involved. Also, the impact of the care situation often extends beyond the care itself. To utilise the network fully it is important to map out the possibilities and limitations of such a network.
