You would not want to be a resident at Marshall Joan’s Care Home. De motivated staff, no stimulation and a culture that lacks care. Fortunately they’ve just failed their CQC inspection leading to a change in ownership, are things about to change? Let’s hope so.
Az2B Theatre Company are proud to present their new play “What Do You See?” A “theatrical feast” which aims to impact positive change. Described as “powerful” “realistic” and “incredibly funny.”
Acting as a companion piece to “Grandma Remember Me?” it follows the next stage of dementia, exploring issues around care homes and end of life palliative care. It looks at the importance of life histories within person centred care, challenges taboos around death and shows the possibility of choice and the empowerment advance care planning brings.
It takes good leadership to impact change and as important as it is to create a positive environment and culture of care for residents, it is equally important to create a work environment that staff want to work in.
Prior to the performance there will be a chance to browse the stalls of a number of services offering support to those living with dementia and their carers
