She’ll Be Alright is a series of short episodes showing neglect in an English nursing home. These are the stories of people who can no longer speak for themselves which invite the reader to access the world of care as it unfolds behind closed doors. The characters’ real names have been changed and the events have been slightly altered in order to create works of fiction, but the stories presented here are true in essence and have not been exaggerated in any respect.
She’ll be Alright has been written so that people can use this guide in order to gain valuable insights into a world that is usually only visible to those involved with neglect cases. The case studies in She’ll Be Alright give readers access to material specially designed for learning and self-development, cross-referenced to the relevant legislation, and complemented with reflection and discussion questions.
This training and self-study guide explores the following topics:
- Safeguarding residents in nursing and care homes, in particular dementia service users
- Supporting nursing and care home staff and dementia workers
- Improving management and supervision within residential settings
- End of life care and palliative care for dementia.
- How to apply the Fundamental Care Standards and the Code of Conduct for Healthcare Support Workers and Adult Social Care Workers in England in order to identify hidden neglect and make a disclosure.
