Some simple solutions…. that makes sense to her

  • Wake Arthur in the mornings by calling out from the door.

  • Never take his ten pound note out of his top pocket.

  • Family providing frozen meals for staff to heat up, so they can spend the time sitting talking to Arthur while he eats.

  • Installing a mat sensor at the door to notice if Arthur leaves the house.


“This approach has really made a difference to staff and people who live here. I was surprised at what a big difference we’ve made to people. Our culture has changed from being very task focussed to thinking about people and what matters to them, and exactly how they want to be supported.”

  • Lisa Martin, Manager, Bruce Lodge.
