Abstract

This paper discusses findings from an immersive simulation pilot project whereby six domiciliary care-givers took on the profile of people receiving domiciliary care. Five domiciliary care-givers received care in their own homes and one received care in the training area of their domiciliary care company. Care was delivered by 2nd and 3rd year student nurses with support from a registered nurse. The following themes from post-intervention interviews and a focus group with the care-givers who assumed the profile of a care-recipient (simulants) are discussed: Recognising the need for stimulation; Reflecting on the importance of person-centred communication; The value of companionship and confidence in care-givers; Understanding boundaries and vulnerabilities; and Empathy and practice changes.

After the experience most participants reported viewing care differently and being more attuned to the wishes of care-recipients.
