Unleash your inner poet 
Residents at Aden Court care home in Huddersfield have been sharing their favourite poems during a monthly poetry society meeting. In a good-hearted "Oh Captain! My Captain" manner.

The poetry has proved to be very popular with the residents, many using the opportunity to reminisce and recite poems from their lifetime, the Carer reports. 

Where the resident is in charge
You might also find interesting how digital care planning are enabling staff to work according to the resident's' wishes every day at Gutasund care home.

The society is currently reviewing their favourite poems, with each resident given the opportunity to score poems read out during the session. The highest ranked poems are being collected in a book. Among the poems already selected are "Daffodils" by William Wordsworth, "The Owl and the Pussycat" by Edward Lear and "Flanders Fields" by John McCrae.

Leaving our bid still open for selection...

"The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" by T.S. Eliot:

Let us go then, you and I, 
When the evening is spread out against the sky 
Like a patient etherized upon a table; 
Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets, 
The muttering retreats 
Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels 
And sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells: 
Streets that follow like a tedious argument 
Of insidious intent 
To lead you to an overwhelming question ... 
Oh, do not ask, “What is it?” 
Let us go and make our visit.

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?
