Summary of Week 2

The focus this week has been on two of the main problems that the staff at the nursing home face when trying to provide care for Peter:

  • How to meet his eating preferences (whilst still managing the routine of the home), and
  • How to allow Peter some freedom to wander (whilst still maintaining his safety).

Considering what you have learned, how would you address these two problems as a carer? Share your thoughts with your fellow learners in the Comments.
