Are you really providing modern quality dementia care?

Dementia Care & Training

A modern approach to dementia care can be easily achieved often with a few simple culture changes and attitude shifts from key staff.  Our consultancy services help your staff team consider how they communicate with those people affected by dementia.

Dementia clients can get labelled as difficult/challenging.  We help your staff team recognise the person beneath the dementia and help them to work at bridging the gap in understanding; thus preventing the need for these labels.  Can your business afford to miss the dementia opportunity?

Our training is provided by experienced facilitators who understand hands on dementia care and the issues that can arise in service provision.  All our coaches ensure participants leave a session highly motivated with a list of actions they personally will implement to progress towards excellent dementia care.
