'This is a wonderful day, as it has opened my eyes into knowing about dementia '
With a combined experience of 40 years in dementia care, the specialist nursing team at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust have extensive knowledge and expertise in the field and have a national and international reputation particularly in the fields of nutrition and hydration, carer support and person centred care.
We have trained more than 200 members of staff and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with 97% of them stating that their working practice would change and that their confidence had increased after the day.
We are now able to offer this Tier 2 training day to Healthcare Support Workers working in different settings covering what dementia is, how to communicate , help with eating and drinking and managing challenging behaviours
