I'm not offended, it's not the 1st time I've heard it. It's more to do w/ who says it; coming from family I would take it into consideration; coming from carers who have known me for 1yr, I would find it offensive.
I'm sure I/we could, but not as much as the staff think – if we could neither of us would be here! I've said that pain does funny things. 2 carers needed for hoist but would need them 24/7, as my flatmate would – @ least we are kept clean & healthy.
Sounds to me like said staff don't want to be in their jobs anyway, in that case "there's the door, go through it." I wish ♥ily that they would, cos all they can see is that 1 of the residents is getting shouty, which is rude, but they don't think about the way they talk to them/that it might be made worse, the older staff do bar one. A good couple of us have complained about her [the staff member, not my flatmate].
