Hi Out There, I hope I am describing this easily. I am wishing to capture, in a snapshot, a quick reference to the background of the resident, it may have information such as likes, dislikes, what they did for a job, family, etc. that I can place in their room for care staff to read, it would be like a one page poster. It would be a quick reference for others to realise that the person living with dementia has had a life prior to entering aged care facility. Does anyone out there have done something similar? I have put this idea to the staff during a meeting and they are very keen on it and wishing to know more about the people they assist. Wanting to get this happening fairly quickly.
