APPROACHES TO TOUCH - Person Centred or TAsk oriented?
For many reasons older people can be deprived of meaningful human touch. When the physical aspects of care becomes paramount touch can become confined to procedures and tasks. However when words, concepts and symbols mean less to a person, how that person is touched starts to mean more. Touch can come to play a vital role in supporting personhood, relationships and well-being.
Unfortunately there is a lot of confusion and misunderstanding in dementia care about what is an appropriate use of touch. Touch in Care training focuses on this pervasive aspect of care in order to maximise the benefits of touch and minimise its negative effects.
