Improving Knowledge and Skills in Person Centred Care - Unity Homes, Salford

Description

The School of Dementia Studies has been working with Unity Care Homes in Salford to equip staff with a foundation level knowledge of Person-Centred Dementia Care.

Aims

To equip staff with a foundation knowledge of Person-Centred Dementia Care.

Method

To date we have delivered:

  • 3 Cornerstones in Person-Centred Care training courses to staff from each of the three care homes owned by the organisation
  • Training has been attended by care staff, domestic assistants, care workers and catering staff

Outcomes

Feedback from members of staff has highlighted that the training has helped them to make a real difference to the experience of care for the residents, with one lady who has dementia being enabled to wash and iron her own clothes, and other residents assisting the chef to plan menus for the home.
