I came across this site and automatically  thought of you! 


It is a site providing programmes of how to carry out reablement effectively and I couldn't help thinking, if this is the way to go, then there is a lot more in depth training available out there on how to approach and implement good and effective reablement practise in visit.

When I wrote  about reablement back in May, I did touch on the area of how it was ,for some, hard to change your mindset of caring in this situation.

Have a look and see what you think.It certainly refreshed on approaches and maybe it will spark a light for you too.

This what they say,

" Dedicated and passionate about Reablement, we are focused on supporting front line staff to gain the necessary knowledge and skills to confidently work with individuals so they may regain their self care skills, and where possible be free from on-going services."

It's where you should be.

Yet more stories on stress levels....something which can't be avoided..

No end in sight to high stress and low morale
Public Service
Levels of stress are high due to autocratic and bureaucratic management styles, 98 per cent of managers have experienced a recent reorganisation and 46 per cent have been involved in compulsory redundancies. As a result 42 per cent want to leave.

"What I find surprising is the implication that senior managers aren't aware of low morale, high stress and general dissatisfaction or that this situation may have an impact on managers' health and individuals' performance."
