There are barriers amongst staff –
Lack of motivation
All of the above barriers make it very hard for a care staff member to provide the best care possible within the work place, to over come these barriers, I myself as a manager must take it to the person / staff member and find out what is causing the barriers, help to ascertain what can be done to solve the barrier of inclusion and equality.
