Explain the importance of a holistic approach to assessment and planning of care or support

It is very important that assessment and planning of care or support must cover individual’s all aspect of life. An individual may require support on something specific which may depend or contribute to other aspects of life. If an individual should have assessed for supporting mobility only, then we have to take into account of other aspects such as deprivation due to lack of mobility or health and safety. We must consider all of these issues while assessing and planning of care and support for the individual. If we do not take into account individual’s all aspect of life, then support or care plan will not be person centred and individual’s care needs will not be met.
