When a home is not a home — 3 Comments

  1. The houseman at my local hospital told me that a visit to her patients in a local care home was a nightmare of overheated rooms with Jeremy Kyle on at full volume.

  2. Excellent observations Ian, and sadly very true. There is a thrust here in the UK to change the inspection process to lessen looking at paperwork in favour of sitting and watching the interaction between staff and residents and the daily routine. This means less paperwork to complete and more time for quality of life and time with residents. Can’t be bad!!

  3. I sometimes wonder if the administrators of some of the homes would be content if their own parents or grandparents were undergoing such experiences.
