AdDress Individual challenges before they become quality of care issues

Ageing, death, dying and the experience of a dementia all involve profoundly difficult and painful losses. These losses affect everyone. Many people working in and visiting care homes face these losses on a regular basis. It can be very difficult for people to make sense of all these changes and respond to them positively, family members and caring professionals alike. Feelings of stress, anger, overwhelm, loss of control, grief and despair are all very natural ways of responding to these challenges. When these difficult feelings remain unresolved difficulties will inevitably occur -

  • Disputes between family members and the service
  • Internal staff conflicts
  • Low staff morale and care giver burn out
  • Low levels of family engagement 
  • Unhelpful accusations & unnecessary safeguarding issues
  • A greater reliance on agency staff
  • High levels of staff absence and staff turn over

These issues are not only extremely costly but will inevitably effect the quality of life of the people living in care. This is because the quality of care that a service provides is determined by the quality of the relationships within the care home. 

These issues are not an inevitable feature of care work. Care homes that invest in these relationships and nurture emotional well-being address these big feelings before they become big problems!


A CARE TAKER FOR THE COMMUNITY

An exceptional quality of care is achieved by investing in the well being of everyone living, working and visiting the home. Pastoral care supports the well being of the whole care service by focusing on the individual well being of the people within it. Offering 1 to 1 private sessions and facilitating support groups, a pastoral carer helps individuals to -
