Booklets aim to improve working practice

Posted on April 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

A series of booklets aimed at people involved in direct care of older people in residential and nursing homes has been published by the charity Counsel and Care. The booklets in “Moving to Quality” are written specifically with care assistants in mind although there is much in them which is of use to senior staff, managers and home owners as well. The booklets’ titles are: #New residents #Health care #Parkinson’s Disease #Continence #Sight loss #Fostering residents’ self-determination #Working in a multi-cultural environment #Personal and spiritual values Each self-contained booklet looks at an issue as it affects residents in residential care and nursing homes and discusses how staff in those homes can improve their working practice with input and support from their managers and other staff. Moving to Quality is priced £6 and is available from Counsel and Care, Twyman House, 16 Bonny Street, London NW1 9PG. Tel. 0171 485 1550
