Department of Health include Home Instead Dementia training

Home Instead has received a letter from the current secretary for health, Jeremy Hunt MP, which is to express his personal thanks for our contribution in helping to champion and implement the Prime Minister’s challenge on Dementia.

Here is what they had to say about our fully funded Dementia training:

‘Home Instead has developed a City and Guilds accredited dementia training programme for its caregivers. The programme teaches innovative techniques for dealing with dementia. Rather than focus on the symptoms and treatments of the condition, caregivers are trained in effective techniques for managing the many different and sometimes challenging behaviours associated with dementia, including refusal, delusions, aggression, false accusations, wandering and agitation. A key outcome is that caregivers learn to respect the person with dementia as an individual and how to tailor care to their specific needs.’

All of us at Home Instead Southport and Crosby are proud that the Department of Health recognise the training that we provide. If you are interested in our Dementia training or for more information, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01704 547938.
