University of Worcester Senior Lecturer attends Helping Hands Training
David Moore, Senior Lecturer for Dementia Studies at Worcester University visited Helping Hands on Wednesday 18th July to understand a little more about the training and development we offer to our carers.
David attended the Dementia Awareness training that is given to all of our carers as part of their basic induction course when joining Helping Hands. The course is delivered by our award winning training team who are based at our centre of excellence and led by our Dementia Specialised Trainer – Jayne Vale.
Jayne has many years experience as a carer and trainer with Helping Hands so is able to draw on personal experience when explaining about the condition. Jayne has also attended courses at the University of Worcester on the subject and has been awarded a certificate in Attendance of a Specialized Trainer in Dementia.
David commented that he was very impressed with Jayne’s enthusiasm and ability to connect and inspire the carers as well as him.
Helping Hands will be holding a Dementia training for families day on 29th September 2012. This is an opportunity for families who may be affected by Dementia to learn a little more about the condition.
