Much more needs to be done to provide proper training of care staff in carehomes particularly for residents with dementia. Many staff have little or no understanding of this condition and its very rare anyone working in the homes have proper medical knowledge. Too often , dementia sufferers are treated like objects that must be fed, watered and toileted but not properly engaged with. Mental stimulation is very patchy and pple being left to stare at the wall or tv all day is inhumane.
