This is a one-page worksheet that is intended to assist clients to plan their activities for the coming week. This tool is one of several handouts provided in the Excellence in Housing-Based Case Management training series, and is intended for professionals who have completed that training.
“A Week of Meaningful Things to Do” is a tool that Intensive Case Managers can use when delivering Housing First to help clients focus beyond the present moment. It is not mandatory, but can be helpful especially:
- In the early days of the relationship
- To help clients understand your role as an Intensive Case Manager
- To get clients to focus not just on those appointments related to the case plan (for example, dates and times you intend to visit; doctor’s appointments; meetings with an employer or welfare, etc.) but also activities that they can engage with outside of those appointment times to reduce social isolation, increase community integration, and (re)build social networks;
- To help clients reflect on those activities that are the best part of their day and those parts where things could have been better.
