Let’s Respect Toolkit for Care Homes Published

The guide is primarily aimed at staff working in care homes who want to know about the mental health needs of older people in order to improve practice and standards of care. However, a lot of the information will also be useful to other care provider – for example, domiciliary care.

The information builds on the “3 Ds”:

    * Delirium
    * Dementia
    * Depression

The layout of the guide is based on the journey of any person entering the care home “world” and therefore you can walk with them as they arrive at the home (“What do I see?”), and continue on their way through Life Story work and finally to end of life care.
