Pros: unit for skilled dementia and rehab
Cons: not enough frontline staff positive recognition, staffing reduced
Being with this company as a unit manager for 12 years one notes shift in corporate goals as financial companies purchased. Early on, people were taking care of people, as I left, services were decreased that should have been increased to care for the skilled person with dementia.
I always enjoyed going to work, to provide personal person centered care – more... to the dementia population, to see how to assist them in their journey and be a part of that calming for them.
Working with the families, assisting them in the acceptance of the disease process, providing support to them was very satisfying.
Staff training was very rewarding. – less
