This story is a logical explainer of the process from an adult resident that brilliantly utilised an FGC.
Lauren is a care home manager who recently attended her first FGC. Issues between a resident’s next of kin and the home had been developing, the social worker Martin suggested an FGC as a way forward.
An older man had lived with dementia for three years before his wife who was his primary carer reported concerns that he had become disoriented and was starting to forget things.
Rozeta is a social worker and describes FGC as a great tool. Like a multi-tool that combines utensils such as a nail file and bottle opener into one, the FGC tool is multi-functional.
Jerome recently received a referral from a GP who felt some of his patient’s symptoms could be treated by addressing her relationship with her son.
We have had a number of stories that relate to carers over the last year but this one has been chosen because it supported the carer to realise – with a little help – he can continue to look after his wife in the family home.
