Our Recommendations

We recommend that Carey Lodge:

  • reminds staff to use the name residents would like them to rather than terms of endearment such as ‘sweetie’
  • continues to ensure those residents who would like memory picture frames on their bedroom doors have them
  • makes better use of the pictorial menus
  • continues to try to recruit another volunteer minibus driver
  • sets up a book /poetry /reading group
  • regularly talks to residents a few months after they have settled in to ensure their likes and dislikes are being catered for. This may be in terms of that they like to do, any issues following a change in doctor, dentist etc.
  • reviews which symbols / pictures should be used to illustrate each activity and how they would be understood by someone living with dementia
