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. 
The benefits of documentation
in your care service

While it is a lawful requirement to provide documentation for the care you provide in your care service or nursing home, this documentation can be used as more than just evidence of the actions you have taken. Naturally, the importance of documentation in healthcare or in aged care facilities will always be important, so the potential for using the documentation more proactively comes from the way your entire organisation is set up to deal with the documentation. Is it done strictly as a way of covering your back only due to lawful requirements?

Your care plan is flawed
and you can't make it perfect

A comprehensive care plan, bespoken in great detail according to the service user’s needs, likes and dislikes is something most care homes perceive to be the ideal. You mainly only hear of the positive effects of this from better and more meaningful care to an easier introduction for agency staff. But what if it's impossible to make a good care plan in the first place?
