Specialist training for specific medical conditions.

Professional and personal care for particular needs.

The people we care for are all very different, so the care we provide must be as individual as they are. You’ll need specialist training to fully understand the challenges your client is living with and to deliver truly personal care tailored to them. 

Our fantastic relationships with leading charities have helped us to develop quality training programmes to do just that.
These charities include:

  • Contented Dementia Trust
  • Dementia UK
  • Parkinson’s UK
  • The Stroke Association
  • Young Dementia UK

If you care for someone with dementia for example, you will understand how to treat the whole person, mind and body, not just the symptoms of the disease. And you won’t be alone. Our Consultant Admiral Nurse will be available to offer help and advice when you need it most.

Shadow programme for new carers.

Learn from the best to be the best.

The shadow programme is especially designed for exceptional individuals who have a passion to become a carer but do not have previous experience of caring, either professionally or personally. 

Before attending the induction the carer will be asked to complete a significant level of the Care Certificate knowledge. 

Once the care Certificate is complete the new recruit will work in a double up placement with the extra supervision of a more experienced carer and also under the careful supervision of the Care Manager.
