Location: West Berkshire
The Occupational Therapist reported:
“I am very pleased to report that the VENDLET trial is a resounding success! Everyone is finding it very helpful and the nursing staff are saying that it is much, much easier to manage her care too, they wish more of their patients had them! I am now about to reduce the care package to 1 x 45 min double-up call in the morning, and the family are going to do everything else.
I have received excellent feedback from client, family, carers and community nurses regarding how good the system is.
I have attached the figures for the savings on the care package for Mrs A. Aside from the benefits to Mrs A, and her family and carers, the community nurses have also found that it is so much easier to manage Mrs A’s care with the VENDLET system in place.”
