Doris likes to wear odd socks.
Doris won't eat breakfast but loves a cheese sandwich at 11am. She likes to get up early and she always sits next to Frank at dinner. Frank loves rock and roll music and never goes to bed before midnight.
You'll need to remember these details, but I'm sure you are used to these important little details if you have experience working in a care home for residents living with Dementia.
You will know that it's that paying attention to these little preferences that make all the difference to people living with Dementia; these little details that keep them feeling safe, secure and most importantly feeling at home.
Maybe you are interested in working for an employer who embraces residents' individualities and works hard to make them feel at home; an employer who really does believe in delivering that Gold Standard care.
If you have an NMC PIN, experience managing in an elderly care setting and you are looking for an employer that shares your ethos please do get in touch.
Doris and Frank would love to get to know you.
