We recognise that good quality training can reduce the potential for abuse by careworkers and by others, and there is good research to indicate that training, when coupled to appropriate staffing levels, can improve the quality of care provided in institutions and by domiciliary care staff. For this reason, we provide a range of training options, targeted toward residential care staff, domiciliary care staff, and voluntary and independent sector groups that interact or directly work with older people.
Learning methods can include handouts, lectures, group discussion, information sharing and small group activities. We can organise bespoke training for organisations or groups. To discuss these options please email or telephone 020 8835 9280.
