Kitchen Conversation with John Dangerfield from Beacon Support

John Dangerfield from Beacon Support joins us for a chat in the kitchen today.  He has been quite a mentor for us here at iNightingale and Phill catches up with him to find out more about what he does to help keep people at home.

Show notes KITCHENBeacon Supports provides in home support to the aged and disabled who need a range of strategies for them to stay at home.

John is a professional service provider but recognizes that the community support that goes in to help the aged & the disabled stay in their homes is enormous.  People dropping over with a lasagna or a chat is the linchpin of staying at home.   Just a simple phone call from a neighbor to remind someone about their medications today can make all the difference to their safely staying in their home.

John discusses with us when families discover that they need extra help so that their family member can persist at home.  It is often in crisis when the family are unable to cope any longer.  John shares what he has uncovered the consistent patterns that emerge in families about how they cope and when it doesn’t work any longer.  He also shares a real story of a client he has helped recently and the ways employed to keep that person at home successfully.
