Dementia Practice Development Consultancy

We recognise that training is most effective in achieving a change in care practices when it is part of an organisational development approach.

Therefore, we offer a consultancy service to organisations, partnering to develop bespoke change management projects combining training with supporting staff to implement change.

We have a proven track record of working in partnership with organisations to identify areas for development and develop realistic plans to improve care practices in dementia care.

By combining our expertise in practice, evaluation and research we are able to realise and embed person-centred care in a timely and sustainable way.
