I would just like to ask some advice really. Where I work there is a new resident and she constantally shouts and I mean constantally. It is unfair to the other residents in the home.
The lady forgets where she is at times she can't even remember the town.
I know this is unfair to the staff and other residents. But when I worked in a Care Home before we had a few residents like this and in the end the staff got so used to the shouting/ calling out that we were not nasty to her but we blocked it out. If you can understand what I am saying.
I do this at work and just get on with doing my job. But the other Carers it drives them mad that the lady shouts all the time and at times they shout at her and I think this is unfair. I have even seen and heard the manager do that same thing shout at her. I am sorry but I dont think it is right for the manager to do that.
I even heard the ladys SON shouting at her the other day, I so wasn't happy with that situation and the manager of the care home was sitting there saying NOTHING.
WHAT would you all do if a lady like this was in a care home where you worked.
I seem to be the only Carer that CAN talk to her without shouting, and I pride myself on that fact.
