Thoughts from the experts

“The Home Instead Senior Care training programme addresses an important and growing need for older people and their families.

Using principles of adult learning to instruct CAREGivers and incorporating state-of-the-art research on behavioural approaches, this programme promises to raise the level of expertise in dementia care. The behavioural issues addressed by this programme are among the most challenging for families.

CAREGivers and family carers who complete this training will be able to demonstrate, and teach how best to provide care for people with dementia and also improve the quality of life for those individuals through sensitive and empathetic care”
