About our training

From Care Assistants to Cleaners, Gardeners, and Registered Managers, residential care training is essential within a residential care setting to assist the staff to provide the optimum short term and long term care. Whilst the needs of the residents may not be acute or medically challenging, the level of care required to nurture and look after the residents can be equally as demanding.

The assisted living facilities on site often provide a home from home environment and to deliver this experience requires patient and caring staff who are able to empathise with those for whom they care.

To gain an insight into how the residents may feel, we offer residential care training in many aspecs of care and we have singled out a few training courses that will be of great benefit to you and your colleagues and ultimately everyone who steps foot into your residential care facility.

From Parkinson’s & Alzheimers Awareness, Stroke Awareness, or Dementia Awareness to the Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards, we are able to teach you the latest ways to engage with the residents and to ensure that you are up to date with the most recent policies and procedures. You may of course just require a refresher course on Infection Control Training or Food Hygiene, which we also deliver in your setting.
