Caring Homes’ ‘My World’ dementia training programme has been recognised by HRH The Princess Royal.
The care home providers was amongst those honoured at an awards ceremony at St James’s Palace.
Paul Jeffery, chief executive of Caring Homes Group, said: “The ‘Living in my World’ dementia training is already making a positive difference to lives of people living with dementia, their families and our dedicated colleagues who support them.
“This training is delivered across our care homes, with very positive feedback from the wider care industry, colleagues and the families we support.
“The training reassures relatives and residents that our colleagues have clear expertise of a consistently high standard, based around best practice. The training also offers a great career pathway for colleagues, providing a clearly signposted training route to enhance their skills in dementia care.”
My World, which was launched last year, was highly commended by the assessors due to the positive feedback it received from staff and families.
Accredited by City & Guilds, the three-level programme supports carers to understand how those living with dementia see the world; with the intention of increasing understanding, boosting confidence and ensuring the care that is provided puts the individual at the heart of everything.
As well as regional trainers, a network of in-house trainers are qualified to deliver the programme locally.
