Individual Care Plans

 Dr. Thomas Costner, LIFE PACE Medical Director

The plan of care serves as a road map; it is a written agreement developed by the participant and the interdisciplinary healthcare team that defines how and when services will be provided to the client. It is formulated by the team after all of the initial assessments are completed. The team then integrates goals that the family and client would like to achieve. The care plan is reviewed every six months or if a significant change occurs. Care plans are key in communicating expectations for both the organization and the client.

The interdisciplinary team is led by LIFE PACE Medical Director Thomas L. Costner, D.O., a 1985 graduate of Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences. Dr. Costner is Board Certified in Family Practice and Hospice and Palliative Medicine.
