Abstract

Long‐term care in general, and care homes in particular, have never enjoyed high status as a place to live and work. This remains the case. In large part this marginalised position is due to the continued failure to value the contribution that care homes make to supporting frail and vulnerable older people. In order to promote a more positive vision of what can be achieved in care homes, this paper argues for the adoption of a relationship‐centred approach to care. The need for such a model is described, and how it might be applied using the ‘Senses Framework’ is considered. It is argued that adopting such a philosophy will provide a clearer sense of therapeutic direction for staff working in care homes, as well as more explicitly recognising the contribution that residents and relatives can make to creating an ‘enriched environment’ of care.

Abstract

When in 1947 Elcometer launched the 101 it was the first hand held coating thickness gauge, the first of thousands; the launch was followed by a tidal wave of competitors, it is to the credit of this very British company that they are still, forty years later, one of the market leaders; it is even more remarkable that the original instrument, with only a few cosmetic changes is still liked and bought by their customers. In the intervening years many new techniques for coating thickness measurement have emerged, some simple, many complicated and the market has divided into fairly clearly defined sectors with unit prices as diverse as the intrinsic value of the end products. As yet no one instrument meets all needs.

Abstract

Until a few years ago, glossmeters drifted; accurate measurement of gloss was difficult if not impossible. Either the zero drifted or high value readings drifted, or both. Even today there are glossmeters which suffer from these problems. Control features built into the Rhopoint Novo‐Gloss and Lab‐Gloss have reduced both long and short term drift to negligible proportions. Errors in reading due to Infra Red reflection have been effectively eliminated.

Abstract

Sustained growth in the short break market has enabled hotel companies to develop nationally recognised brands such as Thistle Hotels′ “Highlife Breaks”. Success in the serviced accommodation sector of this market critically depends on effective retail brand distribution and the responsiveness of managers in meeting consumer expectations. Some of the challenges for managers arising from a consumer research project undertaken by Highlife Breaks are considered.
