Dementia Friends Training
We have recently had Dementia Friends training for our staff and this helps to support and understand not only the needs of our residents but carers / spouses of people who have a diagnosis of dementia. The training was extremely beneficial and staff found it very valuable – so much so we arranged additional sessions and we asked the providers if we could invite relatives along. They were delighted with this suggestion as the more people who are signed up to become a dementia friend the more community friendly we will all be.
We were delighted that some relatives and residents joined our training session led by Alex today and found it extremely beneficial.
