A Highly Informative Workshop: As part of the Be Independent Home Care training and development policy we offer frequent in house training to our team of home carers. Our latest training was a Dementia Training Workshop and was delivered by Jennifer Peare of Care Matters. Care Matters is a training and practice development consultancy in social care with a special interest in the area of dementia. http://www.carematters.ie/
The training was attended by 12 of our carers and was extremely well received by all.
The dementia awareness seminar content included:
· Introduction to the principles of normal ageing and dementia
· Person centred care
· Dementia specific communication
· Distress reaction (behaviours that challenge)
