Home Instead community dementia training  is being run to tie in with Dementia Awareness Week 
the High Street Baptist Church have very kindly offered a location to hold this training, which runs over two days, and the dates are as follows:

Tuesday 19th May
Tuesday 9th June

Each training session will last two and a half hours and will be the same City & Guilds accredited training our Home Instead CAREGivers receive. All participants will receive a workbook and information sheets to take away, plus a Certificate to show their attendance and as this is a community initiative all training is completely free of charge. The training will focus on arming family carers and others in the community with effective techniques for managing the many different and sometimes challenging behaviours associated with dementia including refusal, delusions, aggression, false accusations, wandering and agitation.
