We are able to bring you the fantastic news that we now have this book available.
The first is a 4 part toolkit which was launched at the National Dementia Congress in Harrogate in November 2009. It consists of the Nightingale Model of Enriched Care, a Care Deficit Identification Tool, an Outcomes Audit tool and an Ameliorating Transitional Shock document. The cost of the toolkit is £49.99 and can also be purchased by emailing Joan Clarke at SJB Associates firstname.lastname@example.org
The model is very person centred with the family dynamic approach at its epicentre and the Care Deficit Identification Tool allows care staff to identify an immediate solution to a number of common care deficits found in a care home. The outcomes audit tool allows managers to evaluate the impact of the model and enhance service provision as a result. The Ameliorating transitional Shock document is a useful tool for supporting people through a major life event - its value is in the reduction of stress and anxiety associated with any major change in an individuals life.
