Claire M BS: good thoughts needed (Claire M) (19) BS: good thoughts needed 02 May 14


Hiya!

(Joe could you delete the other thread please, no idea how to do it) ??
There was a Panorama fillm on bbc1 re elderly care.

I made the mistake of watching said film. My own flatshare is v good. I said that what happened there (slapping/being nasty to patients, leaving them in their own wossname) wouldn't happen here. My flatmate's response was "how do you know?" He also told me a few weeks after I moved into said flat that if/when I wasn't patient I'd be ignored by staff – which I've never forgotten.
The place is understaffed (like most if not all) so if I can't be sorted for a couple of mins I'll put some music on / visit the Disc. On the odd occasion when I've been got to too late I've been sorted straightaway.

I am an anxiety sufferer. I cried myself to sleep the other night re my flatmate's comments. Of course, like anywhere there's always some carers I don't particularly like, but I've no reason to think they'd ever think of doing what went on in that film, let alone do it ! I live w/ some horrible, miserable bastards, & it's left to the staff to cheer me up !! I've had bad experiences in places before & feel back to sq1 w/ anxiety. Have you got any ideas for how I can keep myself positive ??
