Residents at Worthington Lake have rolled up their sleeves to support the home’s recent recruitment drive, part of a focus on inclusive care.
Worthington Lake encourages residents to have their say when big decisions need to be made.
Residents Rene and Margaret supported the Home Manager through the interview process offering their insight into what makes a perfect employee.
Rene also joined in with a full day of Emergency First Aid at Work and CPR training as staff members expanded their knowledge and skill set.
Including residents in decision-making processes and alternative activities is known as inclusive care which is a core principle of person-centred care.
It involves understanding each resident's unique needs, preferences, and history, and tailoring care plans to support their individual well-being.
Embracing inclusion gives residents a sense of purpose and goes beyond meeting the physical needs of residents; it recognises their emotional, social, and psychological needs as well.
