As part of our continued commitment to Dementia Care, we organised Informed Dementia to come to our Stamford hub to provide Dementia Experience & Champion Training. Find out more by reading on.

We were visited by Informed Dementia Care at our premises where many of our team completed Dementia Experience and Dementia Champion training, advancing their dementia care training.

As we care for so many of our customers who live with Dementia,  this training is invaluable.  It allows you to walk in the shoes of a person with dementia, so you can start to understand the issues that they experience everyday. The experience, with suits, helps the person to experience being confused, isolated, lost, intimidated, vulnerable and much more and therefore understand what, a carers needs to change to improve quality of care.  We may have received some funny looks as people passed our office carpark but it was all supporting the good cause of learning!

This investment into understanding and training in Dementia, helps the team to truly understand that by making adjustments to our care we can really start to improve the lives of people living with dementia.
