This programme was developed in response to a need to provide training that has a practical application, whilst being underpinned by current theories of practice.
It is based on our practical experience of delivering high quality Dementia care, to a wide range of individuals over many years at S.T.A.R.S Adult Day Centre (www.starsdaycare.co.uk).
Our Dementia Skills Programme is packaged as a set of 6 complimentary but independent modules, with 7 to choose from.
Our programme can be tailored to suit a wide range of individuals employed in Dementia care.
