Yesterday afternoon, six members of Trinity staff received certificates after completing our Dementia Awareness Training. Based at our Worcester Park office, the newly launched workshop is headed up by our Dementia Champion, Angela Pritchard, and is in partnership with the UKHCA (UK Homecare Association) and Alzheimers Society. It is a fantastic opportunity for carers to gain a clearer understanding of Dementia and how they can support individuals and their families to live well with Dementia.
The training is spread over two days and includes a range of modules- An Introduction to Dementia, Diagnosing well, Preventing well, Living and Supporting well and Dying well. With plenty of interactive activities, the programme is designed to ensure staff care to a high standard. This supports our continual outstanding care that we provide for both live-in care and visiting care which is backed by the CQC (Care Quality Commission).
Many of our staff found the training very beneficial and will be applying their knowledge to their existing clients. Have a look at what some of the staff said about the course…
“The training was really useful in understanding Dementia on another level. It was also very interesting and a great way of connecting with other carers” – Jasmine
“Hearing the other carer’s experience was very helpful and great in getting tips and advice” – Frances
“The entire course was very useful, especially learning how someone with Dementia may see the world” – Ali
Since we have had so much positive feedback from our previous Dementia Awareness Training sessions, we would highly recommend our carers to join us in the workshop.
Our next Training will be on the 26th & 27th of February and it is completely free of charge!
Once you have completed the Dementia Training you will receive a certificate to show your attendance. It will also give you an opportunity to showcase your skills to new and existing clients and provide you with specialist knowledge in supporting people living with Dementia.
If you are an existing carer and would like to participate in the next training session then please do give your care manager a call. If you are looking for care work and are interested in the training that we can offer then apply now, to join Trinity in providing outstanding care.
