Priorities in Caregiving
Listen to Jane’s short story, inspired by her nursing elective in Borneo mixed with her early work as a care assistant in a care home. Here, she tells of the importance of knowing the people we care with, and the important parts of their life, which can be reached through objects and other sensory ways, long after speech and language has gone.
