Do you find terms of endearment such as 'love' and 'darling' patronising?It all depends on how it is spoken.. Calling someone Madam can be offensive if delivered in a certain way. I think what is needed is common sense. If the staff were speaking to residents as if they were children then, yes, of course it is patronising. I think what is needed above all else, across the board, are higher National standards of care in all care homes with staff properly trained and homes not just employing cheap labour. You wouldn't expect unqualified staff teaching children or in hospitals looking after the sick so why in care homes? Our most vulnerable deserve proper care with qualified and trained professional staff.
