The first 2 days of the Virtual Dementia Tour training took place at the end of March, hosted at Windmill Care's 'Osbourne Court' in Stoke Gifford, seeing 72 people undergo this unique training experience.

Registered Manager Richard Deverson praised the training experience enthusiastically and gave us these comments from delegates:

"Changed my perspective completely"

"Really gives an insight"


"Will help me approach residents differently"

"I never thought of it like that..."

Richard said how important it is that training is interesting and not 'just another DVD'. "Both old and new staff left the experience with a new appreciation of what it may feel like to live with dementia"

‘Innovative Training is so important to keep staff engaged,’ explained CEO, David Smallacombe. ‘Working with Training2Care we have coordinated 5 days of training representing some of the best value training available to our members.’

With 3 more days already planned in April, we are looking forward to seeing a very successful initiative on behalf of Care & Support West members
