Over the three sessions, 19 of our care assistants successfully completed the training.

During the training our care assistants gained a greater understanding of dementia, and developed more knowledge on how to work with our customer’s who live with dementia. Our care assistants took this opportunity to share their own experiences with the group.

Leaving the session, every care assistant was more confident in their knowledge of dementia, and in their understanding of how to care for our customer’s who are living with dementia.
