Staff Training at Esmond Street Advanced Support Service

Deputy Manager of our Esmond Street Service, Laura Higgins, and Service Support Officer, Jane Feeney, recently attended Dementia Interpreter Training. The innovative two day course qualifies both to train staff in dementia interpretation and to access a professional network to support this skill.

As dementia progresses it is common for people to experience difficulties with communication. This course will help staff to understand these changes and to interpret the remaining communication skills people continue to have.

Esmond Street provides extensive staff training in dementia awareness and seeks to equip staff with the skills to offer the best possible person centred care at each stage of a person's life. We are delighted to be able to offer this interactive course as part of our core training programme. Watch this space for training updates!
