“Working with dementia, residents can be fearful which sometimes results in aggressive behaviour, it was good to learn techniques to help protect myself and the dementia patients”

Your staff will learn how to ‘treat every person they meet with dignity by showing them respect’ and to apply our strategies for meeting the additional needs of persons who are in emotional distress, while ensuring their own personal safety and the safety of others around them.  In this way we will help you to have:

  • Enhanced confidence and Improved Staff safety

  • Closer compliance with regulations and inspections

  • Improved Health and Safety Compliance

  • Protection against litigation risks and claims

  • Reduced injury Rates and absences cause by incidents of violence

  • Perhaps most of all, Improved outcomes for people who use your service

“I enjoyed the training today. I felt it will be very useful and will be using the tactics and skills learned today to assist myself and my colleagues to reduce the amount of injuries that have been happening recently during interventions with our residents.”
