Some Like It Hotter!: Handling Complaints in Residential Care

Synopsis
A video-based pack offering training in examining complaints and the complaining process in residential homes. An audio documentary introduces the procedures to follow and the people to contact when things go wrong. A video drama about an complaining elderly resident of a modern residential home allows the viewer to consider various approaches to problems. The programme aims to stimulate discussion between residents, relatives and advocates, management and staff, about the benefits of open exchange of ideas and conscerns; raise awareness of the right to complain; set the formal complaints procedure in the wider context of seeking to improve the quality of care provided.
