productive caring work environment
Come onto shift to 19:45 and attend handover for 15 minutes. After handover prepare suppers and drinks for all residens and assist with feeding. Start putting residents to bed round 21:30/22:00 hours. Check all resdients who are already in bed and change pads and give pressure relief. Start cleaing after all care is done. 00:00 start full round of changing all residents pads and pressure relief. Once roud is finished, typicaly between 01:30 and 02:00am, dispose of all rubbish and then come back on to the unit the unit to do residents daily report files.03:00 do a breathing check and pressure relief on all residents. 05:00 start a full round of the unit again, changing pads and pressure relief and the start washing residents and giving breakfast. I learned everything from Farnworth care home, I work on a palliative are unit so i have advanced training in care and end of life care. The management is approachable and proffessional and I personally find them easy to approach. The hardest part of the job is seeing soemones illness finally taking over and witness them becoming weaker however it's amazing to see a smile on their faces and to be thanked by residents and families.
