Interested in hearing what other facilities do when a resident has passed away and they need to remove them from their room to holding bay. Do they cover the face of the deceased or leave it uncovered. In the facility I work it is necessary to pass other residents in main area when taking them out therefore interested in what your facility would do if this was the case,

Question 1 : covering or uncovering the deceased face is a personal way?
Question 2: Is their legislation and protocols to be followed for this?
Question 3: What are your thoughts on covering or uncovering and why?

regards Heather

Posted in Daily Attendance Forms

management tells me we need tick sheets, not sure if its a legal requirement for accreditation but do as I am directed, I hated the old ones which had numbers 1 no participation 2 passive participation 3 participation with support. MM all high care residents need support one way or another therefore I felt it meant nothing, so I changed over to this way. I find it is has more meaning for high care as many residents sit and listen to trivia, music etc and engage in their own little way, you just need to be observant. thanks for sharing this.

Posted in Two Minute Activities for Dementia Care

Thank you for this, like Jo I do many of the above as I work in high care with many advance dementia clients and I feel its such a special time being able to share a little sparkle in ones life. Activities are not always about the large active group session but fitting in these simple little pleasures that we take so much for granted. Thank you once again.

Posted in Sensory Pouches for Dementia Care

These are great, I have been wondering if these would work being attached to a table so they cant be moved for those residents who tend to rip magazines of screw things up when they a fiddling. I also have a gentlemen who bangs on a table for no reason I can find at this time. Any thoughts would be appreciated. I am certainly going to make some. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Dee
Most of the movements she does we were doing them, I feel the session just works different as she adds her personality into it which is bubbly and fun. Today we darkened the room and had lavender in a burner just to add another sensory/relaxation mood the residents loved it as it was so calm. Try looking on you tube. Hope this helps.
