Health & Social Care Training

Individuals delivering professional care to people with dementia want to do the best job that they possibly can. Therefore it’s important that they are offered training and support that truly equips them with the skills, knowledge and confidence to connect to each person they care for, in order to help them to have the best quality of life/death possible. Dignity in Dementia provides bespoke training sessions and programmes that do just this, at very competitive rates.  Examples of the type of training/service we can provide includes:

  • ‘Feelings First’ Dementia Awareness Training
  • Dementia associated Challenging Behaviour Training
  • End of Life Dementia Training
  • Facilitated action planning sessions with care home and home care management teams to help identify and implement dementia care changes
  • A mentoring service to senior care home managers
  • Support to prepare for CQC inspections.

We also deliver sessions for relatives of care home residents to help them understand more about dementia and how they can connect more effectively with their family member and get the most from their visits.

We believe that CQC and other inspection bodies will recognise the value that such development opportunities provide to:

  • Staff
  • The people you provide care to and their family members

“Dignity in Dementia worked with our domiciliary care workers to help them understand how even in relatively short visits they can provide really good dementia care that connects with the emotions and feelings of our clients and helps them feel more at ease and content.” 

“The Dignity in Dementia team came to my care home and provided dementia awareness training which enabled both care and non-care staff to understand that small actions on their part could substantially improve the lives of clients with dementia.  I recommend this training for other care organisations supporting individuals with dementia.”
