Hi Morgan, Yes it is often difficult to get all staff on board when it comes to dementia care. We had an onsite virtual dementia tour (Look up Second Wind Dreams online) which was helpful in educating staff and gave everyone something to think about. I agree management needs to intercede and remind care staff of their job descriptions. Perhaps care staff with more empathy and training can be rostered to work in this unit - just a thought!
