Alan Douglas aged 3

Foster carer records

Background

Karen Douglas (27) approached social services six months ago because she was having difficulty in caring for her son Alan (3 years). Alan has been diagnosed with moderate autism. Following a core assessment social services arranged a sponsored day care place for Alan and also agreed that he could have respite care fostering one weekend a month.

Based on this information what are the key areas that should be covered in the foster carers records. For example, details of illnesses.
