Daydream
Believer
There is a warm-hearted story from the care sector going viral at the moment. And we admit to being very delighted. A care worker from Wansbeck Care Home, Choppington is singing the Monkees' 'Daydream Believer' and dancing with one of the residents during a regular night shift at the home. The home's manager posted the video on their home's page and Lee and Pat now have more than 220,000 views.

This morning, a prime time daytime show spoke with care worker Lee and called him a true care home hero. And stuff like that goes straight in here with us, so we much appreciate the positive vibe from national and local media. Keep it up!

The Chronicle has posted more information and also the video showing the song and dance here.

An astonishing sidenote to the story is that Pat's (the resident) brother Ron had emigrated to Canada after the war and hadn't seen her in about 70 years. He then came across this video and got back in contact with her and now says he'd like to move back to the UK - to spend out the rest of his days with her.

Meanwhile, a lot of time is consumed producing more negativity and constraints than promoting actually improved care outcomes.

In both Sweden and Denmark charities such as the Mary Homes and Stora Sköndal have made the switch from paper documentation to digital care planning.
