Can anyone fix dementia care?

Have a look at this video of Sir Gerry Robinson made by the BBC. He is a business man who specialises in turning around businesses from failure to success. He looks at what can be done in dementia care in two homes in the UK.

What he finds makes you want to throw your head back and wail in frustration and sadness.

Yet, he finds some signs of hope. The BBC series is broken up into several 15 minute pieces in these video clips telling the story of his journey.

This video is the first of several I will link to in a series of posts over next few days. This will be well worth your time just to see what is being done and what can be done.

Let me know what you think. What is happening in your place? What grabs your attention?

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

to all our readers and customers who have supported the work we do.

Our goal is to create opportunities for older people in care to experience wellbeing and to support those who care for them. You have contributed to that work and we thank you.

We look forward to working with you and stimulating reflection on the person-centred approach to care practice  in 2011.

Our office is closed from 24th December and reopening on Tuesday 4th January 2011.
