B&M Care is delighted to announce the launch of the Group’s first series of podcasts, titled “Dementia Care – Our Way”.

Freely available to download on iTunes, Google Play and Spotify, as well as the B&M Care website, each of the six episodes looks at how B&M Care’s ‘Rose Model of Dementia Care’ is embedding best practice across the Group, and improving areas of our business such as Building Design, Compliance and Engagement & Wellbeing.

Each episode works around a single theme and speaks to two or more key people within B&M Care who share their knowledge and expertise to provide insight and analysis around their area of specialism.

Episodes include:

1. Introduction to the Rose Model of Dementia Care

Caroline Inch (Director of Care & Dementia Services) and Elaine Thorpe (Training Manager) introduce the Rose Model of Dementia Care and speak around the motivation for creating it, how it works within a B&M Care Home, and the expected outcomes in enhancing day-to-day care practice.

5. Engagement & Wellbeing

Ruth Webster (Engagement & Wellbeing Officer) and Margaret Daniels (Engagement & Wellbeing Co-ordinator) discuss the differences between ‘activity’ and ‘engagement’, how meaningful occupation can reduce behaviours, and how the Rose Model of Dementia Care is impacting a home’s environments.
