Will staff have dementia training?
Four of our homes already provide specialist dementia care with highly skilled staff, and some have specialist dementia units. We need to ensure all our staff are skilled to respond to the needs of individuals with dementia and their carers. Good training is key to ensuring we provide excellent services. We are developing our training programme now so that we can continue to meet the assessed learning needs of managers and staff.
Training will also continue to be provided in other areas of service delivery where we are requiring increased skills, responsibility and knowledge from staff.Bookmark the permalink. ← What happens to staff if a home changes focus from caring for older physically frail people to those with dementia?
