Hi HazelMy husband is now in the later stages in an EMI unit, and my problems there are with the staff nurses who have not had EMI training. I don't know how we get to them as they're not NHS, so the care home organisation would have to fund the training. The carers on the whole are excellent, and the charge nurse is RMN, so no problems there.
I agree with Norman. As someone said, 'education, education, education'.
PS TP is the best source of information and support around. Perhaps all care homes should have the web address prominently displayed and pointed out to families.
I know you have a lot on your plate at the moment, but with your experience, could you give an informal talk to the staff at John's care home?
If it helps staff at one care home to understand, then maybe you could have a format for the talk, which we could all then try to replicate and deliver to the care staff in the home, where our relatives are living.
Every little helps etc....
