Tell Mrs Mill her husband is still dead

Publication year:

Pagination:
253p.
Place of publication:
London

For more than 10 years the Trebus Project has been working to capture the memories and insights of people with dementia before their words are lost to history. So far more than more than two hundred ‘stories’ have been pieced together ranging from a few stumbling lines to more than thirty exuberant pages. This is the second of two compilations self published by the project. It contains 47 life stories assembled from the fragmented memories of people with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia in nursing homes and locked hospital wards across the country. The stories range from first hand accounts of important historical events such as the London Blitz and the Suez crisis to personal tales of counterfeit money, murder, stolen biscuits and getting drunk with Princess Margaret. Several of the stories communicate the struggle of living with dementia in episodes containing the contributor’s last spoken words. The editors aim was to give voice to a group of people who are not only marginalised, but are also often perceived as having nothing left to say. They hope to have demonstrated that everyone has a story to tell, even if it can be sometimes fragmented or difficult to interpret; all people need is for someone to truly listen.

Deprivation of liberty safeguards: an initial review of implementation

Authors:
HARGREAVES Roger, (comp.)
Publisher:
Mental Health Alliance
Publication year:
2010
Pagination:
15p.
Place of publication:
London

The Mental Capacity Act Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards (DoLS) were introduced in England and Wales in April 2009. They allow care homes and hospitals to obtain a power to detain residents or patients who lack capacity, if this is necessary in their best interests to protect them from harm. This is an initial review of the progress of implementation based on feedback from Mental Health Alliance (MHA) members and other organisations involved in the DoLS process. The briefing highlights some positive achievements and concerns. It discusses how, so far, there has been less use of this scheme than predicted and there are big variations between different areas. Flaws in the scheme and poor understanding of it mean that people’s human rights are not being adequately protected. A number of recommendations are provided by the MHA. These include the need for the Government to look at why so few applications have been made compared to levels expected and why there are such disparities between supervisory bodies and geographical areas. They also include the need for revised guidance on the meaning of deprivation of liberty which is comprehensible to care providers, and especially to care home staff.
