Hi, Jackie, thank you for sharing. You are quite right in taking serious the person-centred care. The more you know your client the better the care. Best wishes

Hi Linda and Alison, I am sorry to hear that. I will check if there are paints that can withstand dishwashing. Dishwashing detergent is brutal. I will let you know. Best wishes.

Hi Lowana, I can give you a description of a typical form. The Pet Application & Agreement form outlines the role and responsibilities of the pet owner. It contains, among other information: the pet picture, breed, age, dog training certificates, vaccination and microchip or registration details. It also contains references from vets or previous owners, as well as, information on what the pet was trined to do: fetching balls, shaking hands, sitting on command, bark on command, roll over. I hope this can help. Best wishes

Hi, Kristine, we have an activity instruction manual we call €Leisure & Health - Policies and Procedures Handbook that may answer your question. It is a manual with a detailed guide on how to carry out activities for new or fill-in staff to use. Here is the link: http://www.goldencarers.com/leisure-health-policies-procedures-handbook/4475/
Best wishes.

Hi Gemma, you could make a booklet of activities, like: Fun Riddles, Spot the Differences, Word Search, Words in Words, Crossword, and Short stories to give to individual clients. For groups of clients I would suggest Pot Luck Quiz, Who Am I? Name the Love Songs, Things that Go Together, and more. If you have a white board, Word Game is a fabulous sort of entertainment. Check the links below. Best wishes.
