What’s next, What can I do?

Today I am sat at home, waiting  to do some one to one session with learners (working from home), had appointments booked in but sadly not one completed at the moment and its gone 12:00 (tick tock). However, I have had an interesting call about a new idea for a support site and I am now questioning what I want to do next.

Don’t get me wrong assessing in general is a good job and it fits with my life but like today, I have not had a session completed, sadly people not picking up the phone, no work to mark so in some sense it becomes hard to ensure someone’s learning journey is consistent and meaningful. Commitment sometimes is lacking or schedules change in care and people just don’t let me know.

So I am now sat here thinking (cogs turning, head full).

My ultimate goal was to go into more training, motivational sessions to get people to buy into the care and how to be the best. I wanted to get a community talking about care but not sure how.

I see the best but some times not the so good (poor practice and care). I set up my Facebook page and this blog to try to get a community talking and sharing their stories but to be honest its not working. Have less then 100 likes on FB page which if you consider the amount of people in care that’s just nothing. Followers on word-press I have 21. Is this because I don’t use profanities, I do a blow by blow log of my day, is it because people just don’t talk about care or is it people in care just don’t have the time.

So where am I going wrong? What do I need to do?  Where do I go from here?

Good News Stories Regarding Care

I am doing this Blog to try to bring a community together who work hard on a daily basis, who provide a service that is immeasurable to the people who require the support. I thought I could get people to join in and speak about care, to offload to ask question to gain some advice or guidance.

However, trying to find light-hearted news stories or good care news is really hard, is that because the media gain so much more reporting failings and poor care providers or is that because we talk openly about ‘bad’ care but forget to promote ‘good’ care.

We need to commence a push for good news we need to get care providers, inspectors to talk loudly about the ‘good’ as well as the ‘bad’. Care is a growing industry and does require inspectors/family members/carers to speak up about poor and abusive practice but  we also need them  to talk about care homes that are doing exceptional work to provide an environment that meets all needs.

So if you have any good news stories please add it in the comment box.
