We’d like to give a big welcome Jenny, Liz, Sheila, Deborah, Judith and of course our CEO, Thalia who join our growing team of Enter & View volunteers.
They all participated a full day’s training on 17th August which means they are all raring to go on their first visit. Of course, they won’t be thrown in the deep end but will be partnered up with some of our experienced Enter & View volunteers for their first couple of visits. Four have already committed to look at dignity in two different care homes in September and we’re looking for more visits as soon as we can schedule these in.
We’ve now completed 12 Enter & View visits since April 1st and these reports can be read together with all those we’ve done over the previous 2 years here. You’ll also be able to read relatives, staff and residents comments on these care homes posted online following our report as well as a link to the CQC report.
Our visits have resulted in us not only giving a voice to those in care homes but they are bringing about positive changes to care homes across Buckinghamshire as good practice is shared. Watch this space and we hope to bring you news of some collaborative working in this area shortly.
