At very short notice, with no preparation, the Co-workers at Tigh a’Chomainn responded with creativity implementing a high quality meaningful day service which addressed both the individual residents’ needs but also the community dynamic.
How did we achieve this?
By listening to the residents
By empowering the co-workers and staff to be creative to create a therapeutic balance to the day and week
By thinking out of the box e.g creating a shop and ‘pub’ in house to meet the needs of everyone in the community
By supporting the short term volunteer co-workers who decided to stay because they cared and valued the meaningful relationships they had developed between themselves and with the residents
By creating a work life balance for everyone that recognises that quality relationships need to be at the forefront of any planning
By creating peaceful quiet moments for everyone and being sensitive and responsive in the moment when a need arises
By creating festive moments for the whole community
Dear Family members and important others,
With the current health situation we would ask that family member note that due to the vulnerability of other residents in the home that visits to family and important others adhere where at all possible to the infection control recommendation set out by the UK government and that social events are kept to an absolute minimum including taking people out. We appreciate the inconvenience this may pose, however, it is essential we keep people safe and well. We understand that unduly disrupting planned visits can cause considerable upset. For the remainder of this week we are happy for people to visit home if these simple steps are adhered too, however, we recognise that this is a fluid situation which may change at any point. Should this be the case we will make contact once again.
Should you or any other family member show signs of coronavirus we would be grateful that we are informed as soon as possible so that all measures can be taken to keep people safe and well. Likewise, any suspected case will be reported to all.
