Sample text

Resident and care staff interactions unconsciously combine these variables, and influence who gets attention and who is ignored. In a discussion I had during a training session with care staff about how these differences in relationships affect the quality of care, they initially denied that there were any preferences or ‘favourites’. But then they went on to elaborate how some residents were more difficult and ‘challenging’ than others, and that there were others who were ‘gentle’ and no trouble at all.

But whereas we can understand this brutalising process in prisons and military bases, because it is based on what Foucault has identified as ‘punishment and control’,6 the context of the dementia sufferer is different. And because it is different it is more grotesque, because it is done gently and unconsciously, and regarded by the perpetrators as a kindness. At this point sociological explanations begin to fall apart, we are forced to sift through the images that come to mind, perhaps from Hieronymus Bosch or the concentration camps, or Kafka.
