On the 23 May 2012 Home Instead Preston had a team training session from Parkinson’s UK presented by Claire Hewitt who is the regional trainer for the northwest.
It was a well-structured and thought provoking presentation, providing detailed information on all aspects of Parkinson’s. By the end of the session the team fully appreciated the key aspects required to support a person who is suffering from Parkinson’s.
The Preston care team have already received training from our Care Manager which enables them to provide practical care and support for a full range of personal needs. However, having received additional training from Claire at Parkinson’s UK we are confident we can present a care plan that meets the specific needs of a client with Parkinson’s working collaboratively with all concerned to ensure a holistic approach is taken to meet the individual’s care needs.
I would yet again like to thank Claire for giving us a thought provoking and enlightening training session, and also thank our team for their attendance.
Further information and support is available from Parkinson’s UK do not hesitate to call or email us at HISC Preston with any questions you may have.
