Care Services Requires Focus

EEF LogoThe Edith Ellen Foundation believes that despite the implementation of various pieces of care legislation, regulations and training programmes intended to improve care systems, the care culture has not improved, and it will not improve because at present, care systems do not have an understanding of how to do it.

Care services require a focus on the fundamental cause of inconsistent basic care skills in social care processes, and how to prevent the abuse and neglect which appears in some care homes within a “caring industry”. There is an urgent need to coach management and staff away from the repetitive behavioural process that impedes a more caring delivery and kinder environment for those receiving and delivering care services.

Understanding how to deliver excellent and consistent individual care may be widely debated and discussed but only happens in those rare cases where “someone” understands how to negotiate their way around the health and social care systems and to bypass the internal and external barriers that impact on management and staff behaviour which prevent the deliver an excellent holistic care experience every time.

The Foundation understands all too well that there are real barriers that stop people trusting in the safety of some care homes, and why it might result in abysmal care processes and an unnecessary early and painful death of people receiving care.

We worry that:
·         in part, current legislation and regulation leads to people’s rights and lives being forgotten and lost and eats away at the protection, kindness respect, compassion and care benefits for the people and their family on the front line of care, in the first place.
·         the caring industry as a whole relies too heavily on tick box systems and extensive paperwork which is believed to support the care of patients but, in fact, it rarely equates to a true day in the life of a care home.
·         it relies but is not aided by the whole concept of paper trails and distance learning aids as mechanisms for safe quality assurance for caring.

Without moving away from old ways of working it will never reflect the underlying true behaviour and untrained approaches from care workers which leads to dysfunctional and disconnected ways of working and lack of quality assurance of care, which can be found in care homes in the UK.

The Edith Ellen Foundation believes it is the Good News Story leading the way for our Edith Ellen care workers to be trained and recognised as the leaders for professional excellence in the care Industry.

It believes it holds the essential key strategy and policies that will bring fresh ideas to care and will see sustainable and consistent outcomes supporting the wellbeing and self-worth of all those delivering and receiving care and will create a necessary guarantee for the safety of people and their families.

As such, its aim is to assist in improving the trust and provision of robust, dedicated and practical holistic Kindness in Care, and to guide management and staff education toward proven behaviour and staff skills that sees and understand the overall benefits of caring in the manner which, so many good carers wish to give, but are hampered without the support of effective and attentive processes and management and staff teams learning how to deliver excellent care together.

This Foundation looks to provide a significant increase in the understanding of the people’s own requirements and the overall standard and recognition of the place outstanding quality nursing and care in all care homes, locally and nationally plays in the reputation, sustainability and profitability of the care industry across the UK.

The Edith Ellen Foundation believes a sound commitment to kindness should be the lifeblood of anyone involved in the provision of care. If that principle were to be enshrined within the culture of all nursing and social care pathways, then abuse and neglect could be prevented.

As a Foundation we can’t do that without your help please support us as we start to open up the next phase of our Kindness in Care Training programme for 2018-2020.
