New guide aims to help care homes staff improve dementia care

A new guide to help care home workers and managers improve life for those with dementia has been issued by the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement.

It is the result of nine month’s work which took place to capture the experiences of staff, relatives and those with dementia.

The guide includes a toolbox of techniques to help tackle the most common dementia care challenges faced by care homes staff including:

  • managers finding it difficult to motivate their team
  • staff feeling they don’t have the time to engage effectively with residents
  • staff feeling residents don’t respond to them, no matter how hard they try

It is divided into three sections – a section for care home managers, a section for care home staff and an invaluable A to Z of the most commonly used tools, including a description of what they are, who should use them and where to find them.
