Dementia essentials training at Archbold House – Part 1

KOPWA is always looking for opportunities to upskill our staff’s approach to our residents and clients. Our recent initiative is engaging Dementia Training Australia to provide the essentials program to 16 of our staff. Reflections upon the first training session has seen preliminary introductions of improved ways to look after both consumers and staff’s wellness. Training opportunities such as this help to bring about awareness of the complexity of Dementia and to enhance our coping skills when relating to our residents and clients. Updates will follow the subsequent sessions have been completed.
