The Whitecroft care home rolls out new resident of the day initiative

The Whitecroft care home in Orsett has recently introduced a new resident of the day scheme to improve person centred care and inclusivity at the home.

Each day, a resident will receive the royal crown, cup and ‘resident of the day’ t-shirt, whilst playing their favourite song to make their day extraordinary.

At dinner time, the care team will lay the table for a celebratory dinner to mark the resident’s special occasion.

The resident of the day programme was implemented to ensure each person has a fair opportunity throughout the year to be celebrated and elevated, whilst granting team members an opportunity to learn even more about the residents they care for.

Laura Glyde, Home Manager at The Whitecroft, said: “It is important to make sure that residents are made to feel special and celebrate them individually. The introduction of this scheme has given us a perfect opportunity to get to know the residents better, and to see the residents feel so special makes the team feel wonderful.”
