Dementia carer training

More jobs, more training, more support. Join Britain’s best home care team.

Join the home care industry’s dementia experts

Dementia affects one in six people over the age of 80. Because so many of our customers are living with dementia, we place extra special importance on training our carers on how to best support them.

There are many forms of dementia. And we’re finding that more and more families are coming to us in need of support. The reassurance of being able to stay at home, in the place they know most, and being able to keep the same routines, is so important for a person who’s living with the condition.

We provide dementia awareness to every single one of our carers. There are opportunities to further your knowledge with advanced training from our dementia specialists. And we also have a dementia helpline if you ever need any extra help.

Specialist dementia carer training

We have over 300 specialist dementia carers working for us who’ve all opted for extra training to support families living with dementia across the country. As more and more people turn to dementia care in the home, there’s a growing number of opportunities for dementia experts.

If you’re interested in also becoming a dementia expert, speak to the training team during your carer training course. Advanced dementia courses, developed in partnership with Dementia UK, are held several times each year, so we can keep you posted on when they are. They’re free of charge too.

I thoroughly enjoyed the dementia training session. I do gratefully appreciate all the opportunities that Helping Hands have given me since starting… I am beyond thankful.

Julia's story: A dementia champion in the making

While Julia was caring for Mr Watts, an elderly man who is living with dementia, her manager noticed how well she was dealing with the sometimes challenging scenarios she faced. Predicting that Julia was a good candidate for the advanced dementia carer training, her manager put her name forward for the course.

Following the course, Julia couldn’t wait to put her newfound knowledge into practice. She’s now a confident dementia carer with a deep understanding of the condition and how to better handle some of the difficulties being faced on a daily basis.

Julia is now a dementia champion for Helping Hands, and is sharing her dementia care advice across our network of carers. Having completed the full programme, she’s been awarded with her Silver Dementia Award.
