It seems to me that the only moan and groan i have these days is the poor knowledge the carers have. We have had to have different carers in the morning for a week and they have got no idea. Because in the morning i act as 2nd carer i have witnessed and had to correct some really strange things. Getting tops off they seem to think you yank it over the head then take arms out ...... i was taught arms out then over the head. Next they think if you put the arms in the jumper then over the head...... i was taught head 1st then arms.
Personal care (washing) was an eye opener. So far this week i have had to point out that nivia (yes my face cream) is not for bottoms.?...that you have to wash the front before the back (yes we are talking nether regions)..... and it is better to dry the butt before you put the cream on. (Bum cream)
Oh and don't forget the idea of leaving Brian in peace to do his toilet they think means you stand the side of him watching or in the doorway facing him. They thought i was mad when i said can you come out and shut the door. (I must have some strange ideas about privacy.)
Roll on monday when our angle is back on duty. And I'm not sure who will be crying the most Brian or myself and they will be tears of joy and happiness rather then the tears of despere that have been shed all this week. Janexx
