    For those working in the domiciliary field it could be argued
    that this video finally manages to push aside many of the
    preconceived ideas that suggest home care is simply about doing a
    bit of shopping or cleaning for people with frailties, writes Marie
    Mason-Begbie. The video sensitively presents four real-life case
    studies that demonstrate the diverse range and complexities of
    individual care needs; while also managing to demonstrate the level
    of induction, training and development that is required by staff in
    order for them to provide a high quality and professional
    service.

    Any criticisms about this video relate to the poor sound
    quality, and the “official” talking head approach, but by using
    this video in a planned and innovative manner it should support a
    number of functions.

    The video has clear messages: domiciliary care is a professional
    arm in its own right; it is a service area that is in great demand;
    and an area that is valued by many people in local communities.

    Marie Mason-Begbie is associate regional director for
    Milbury (North), a care service provider.
