The team are out most days at Care and Nursing Homes across the UK,training care workers in how to recognise and manage choking as well as how to use DeChoker.
Having personally spoken with hundreds of people who work in the adult care care sector, so many of them have told me their choking stories and the personal impact it had on them.
And yet, day after day they come back to ‘work’ and carry on.
The National Association of Care & Support Workers (NACAS) believe that care is a skilled and unique profession.
One that deserves recognition, respect, and celebration.
The skills and expertise care workers deliver every day make a significant difference to the lives of people they work with and support.
And I couldn’t agree more.
At one of our training sessions today we took along some treats for the staff, the very least we can do.
