Dementia training in our care homes
We empower our staff to develop caring strategies that reflect evidenced-based practice and follow national and local dementia guidelines and strategies.
We train our staff in a range of essential skills to ensure and promote people’s safety. However, we recognise their needs for continued and sustained leisure, social and recreational activity, as well as for their physical and emotional health and wellbeing.
Our specialist dementia lead nurse has developed a Level 3 Diploma in the Principles of Dementia Care (accredited by NCFE), in conjunction with Agincare’s own training company. This diploma develops and expands the skills and knowledge of staff working in Agincare care homes.
Our dementia specialist also holds dementia workshops for staff and care talks for local communities and relatives.
