Dementia training at Trinity Homecare
We’re committed to supporting our carers and our clients with dementia training Our most recent dementia training course has enabled more of our TrinityCarers to develop their knowledge and skills
“We’re making a big commitment to training,” says Head of Operations, Derek Brougham. “We want all our staff to be the best they can be.”
The overwhelming feedback from last year’s staff forums and surveys was the request for more training and that’s why Trinity have teamed up with Epsom’s College of Further and Higher Education (Nescot College) to offer free courses contributing towards a Diploma Level 2 in Health and Social Care for all staff.
Trinity has worked alongside Nescot College to tailor the training course, which offers six modules in advanced training, including specialist teaching on dementia and palliative care.
The course offers a mix of academic and hands-on training, and allows staff to work at their own pace using a combination of on-line learning, with the added benefit of face-to-face tutoring with lecturers from the college coming into the office twice a month.
This training is offered on top of the initial care certificate and mandatory annual training, which Trinity offers in-house to all care workers.
“We want all our carers and staff to feel confident in dealing with any situation, so they can give the best possible care to every one of our clients.”
Derek, Head of Operations
