The Upside of Lockdown

2 minute read

I firmly believe that if nothing else comes out of this disruptive time, it will be an enhanced awareness of each other and the often invisible world of care. It is an awareness that, while we go about our everyday, rather self-centred stuff, there is a kind of ‘parallel universe of caring’ where people look at the person they care for in the eye and tell them, with total self-sacrifice, that they are going to help them have a healthier, happier day today even if it means they risk their own health and happiness.

Looking For Kindness

2 minute read

The theme for Mental Health Awareness Week this year is kindness; something that we all appreciate but it can be difficult to define.

Last year, I took part in a series of conversations led by the University of Edinburgh on kindness in policy. This was in response to the inclusion of kindness in Scottish Government’s National Performance Framework. Through case studies, reviewing previous research and hearing examples from across many contexts, it was clear that there is a positive impact of kindness.

The image of the care worker has completely transformed

For everyone the last couple of months has been a rollercoaster of emotions and experiences, trying to adjust to lockdown life and living in the global Corona Virus pandemic.

Loneliness And Mental Health: Social Networking (In The Flesh)

3 minute read

The subject of loneliness and mental health has been at the forefront of discussions in adult social care. We have explored the topic of loneliness and come across a few options to help combat loneliness such as au pairing and Homeshare schemes. If the Homeshare scheme or au pairing isn’t right for you because there’s no spare space at home or having someone live-in (or living-in with someone as a younger person) isn’t something you’d be comfortable with, then there are also many non-live in schemes that help build community connections and reduce loneliness.  Continue reading “Loneliness And Mental Health: Social Networking (In The Flesh)”

Age demographics and social media

Is This Thing On? Age Vs Social Media

4 minute read

I feel as though I was part of one of the last generations to experience childhood with limited access to the world of social media. I remember hearing stories of Myspace, but my young mind couldn’t comprehend what this meant. I was too busy devouring books and playing with toys and, besides, we didn’t own a computer until I turned at least twelve.
