Restraint and Safe Holding in Dementia and Elderly Care
Helping staff to professionally manage situations when they encounter a person living in care who is distressed or displaying other stress-related behaviour associated with living in care.
“We treat our clients like ladies and gentlemen,
not because they always are,
but because we always are”.
We teach and focus on a non-escalation approach which creates a safe and secure environment for dementia care. This is underpinned by person-centred thinking and approaches which acknowledge the stress-related behaviours seen in care homes. With our 1-Day (or Half-Day Blended with Online) training courses we help teams like yours to:
- understand approaches which ensure non-escalation of high-stress interactions with people living with dementia
- think in a person-centred way about scenarios which are conflict flashpoints for people with dementia
- use smart ‘proxemics’ to ensure safety in the event of physical resistance or reactions from distressed residents
By blending our verbalisation skills, our understanding of the flashpoints for distress in dementia and by underpinning these with confidence in personal safety, we help clients to better care compassionately for their clients. Please explore these two dementia training courses and contact us with any questions you have.
