Preparing room for visiting carers
Posted: Sun Sep 23, 2018 11:46 pm
Hi, new carer here. My brother in law - 49, mobility issues and learning difficulties was lovingly cared for full time by his mum for his whole life. No restbite nothing. She sadly passed away and to keep routine as usual we are having carers to come in at home before and after the day centre as me and my partner work. This is very new to this family so we want to know if there is anything we can put in place to help carers - such as labelling items? Or displaying important information such as medication on wall. We’re obviously making adjustment such as extending his room to include a raising bed to be changed on. It’s more what carers visiting different homes might find useful. Especially as he is very sensitive to routine and language ! I know they will know all this but they aren’t here for long and we don’t want them spending their whole hour bargaining with him ,he does everything in his own time.
