19th – 25th September 2022 is Falls Awareness Week here in the UK. For home care companies based in Hereford and Malvern, like Joghide, this is a great opportunity to make sure that carers are aware of the risks and impacts of elderly service users falling. It is also a good time to remind them of all the tools and training they have to identify, report and mitigate these risks.
Joghide Home Care is fully digitised – which means that all our records and procedures are all done electronically through our care management system called PASS. This helps our carers to document observations and potential issues and risks alerting management so that these risks are mitigated. There is also a commitment to continuous training and development of staff to ensure that they have the knowledge and skill set to deliver safe and effective care to our service users.
