A whimsical look at home management


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

Care home managers and anyone else who works at, lives in or visits a care home will enjoy reading Pat Howard’s Just in case… – making a home for elderly people. Full of amusing and sensitively written anecdotes, the book tells the stories of people living and working in a care home with honesty and insight. On reading Just in case… it is evident that, as owner/manager, Pat Howard never under-estimated the people she was making a home for, and has a “no-nonsense” and unbiased perception of their many needs and a genuine appreciation of their individuality. This is a delightful and yet informative book which helps to reinforce the many positive aspects of working with and caring for elderly people. # Just in case… – making a home for elderly people, priced £9.25 post free, ISBN 1 898576 22 X, is available from Third Age Press, 6 Parkside Gardens, London SW19 5EY. It can also be ordered through bookshops.
