Recruitment & Training Manager, Debra Sparks was one of the first Managers within the Home Instead family to carry out the newly launched Train the Trainer for Alzheimer’s Care at the National Office in Warrington. The new Alzheimer’s training enhances the current training that CAREGivers receive. It focuses on how Alzheimer’s can affect the individual and how the condition can progress. For our CAREGivers, we enable them, through the training, to focus on the person and not the Alzheimer’s so that they can support the individual in their own home and enhance their quality of life. The main areas covered are

1) What is Dementia and the types of dementia, 2) Dignity and respect, 3) Capturing Life's Journey, 4) Techniques to Manage Behaviours, 5) Encouraging Client Engagement, 6) Assisting with Activities of Daily Living and 7) Keeping Your Client Safe

If you would like to learn more about how Home Instead Senior Care can support you and your loved one living with Alzheimer’s or Dementia, please call 01457 874566.
