Wed 2nd January 2013; Day one on Sampson Unit
This is my first day of what will be a few months' work on Sampson Unit. In the first few weeks I will simply be getting to know the residents and staff, and making observations on the environment and how the unit operates. The goal is to fully understand the lived experience of the residents, so a plan of action can be made with the residents and staff to ensure that experience is as happy, comfortable, stimulating, and loving as possible. All of our wants and needs are different, so each resident's day-to-day life experience must reflect those unique preferences and choices. That is the challenge of providing excellent person-centred care; meeting the needs of both the individual and the group. But it can and will be done, and any suggestions you have are welcome!
I look forward to meeting you all. Please give any questions/feedback by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or in person: catch me as you go by and we can have a chat then or book a meeting, and I'll be at the relatives meetings also.
Many thanks and best wishes,
