I recently read a very thought provoking and eye opening article in The Daily Telegraph by regular writer Max Pemberton (@MAXPEMEBERTON for those on twitter). He makes some very valid points about the institutionalisation that is still apparant in some care homes across the country. I'm glad to say that at Kepplegate we do not practise what Max writes about but it is still worth noting that it happens even with todays standards of care and thorough Care Act. Person centred care should be at the core of all providers and I hope some of those providers have read this same article and are doing some serious reflective practice.
