Holistic approach to care

Care as a whole-holistic care 

A holistic approach to care is often impossible for front line hospital staff.

Working in domicilliary  care I see people in their home environment surrounding by personal possessions accumulated over the years portraying their character and interests.

I also get to see photographs of people as they were when they were young. This means I probably have a more respectful approach to them than others who may just see them as an “elderly person”.

I personally witnessed this with my own Mother-in-Law when a nurse from the ulcer clinic visited her at home for some reason. I could see she was visibly surprised to see her lovely, perfectly kept home. She was actually treated with more respect following it.
