Industry leading care home provider, Caring Homes Group, has been shortlisted for the HR Distinction Awards in the Occupational Health and Wellbeing category for their ‘Living in my World’ dementia training.

Due to an ageing population, and an increase in the rates of dementia and Alzheimer’s, Caring Homes Group HR team created a pioneering training course to provide their carers with a full understanding of what it is like to live with dementia. ‘Living in my World’ is a training programme, accredited by City and Guilds, that has been rolled out to all 60+ residential and nursing homes in the Caring Homes chain and has been instrumental in ensuring exceptional levels of care.

Laird MacKay, Managing Director, Caring Homes, explains: “The course has already made a very positive difference to the lives of thousands of people living with dementia, their families and the dedicated colleagues who support them. It has also created a great career pathway for colleagues, providing a clearly signposted training route to enhance their skills in dementia care.”

He continued: “We’re particularly proud of our HR team who were instrumental in creating this bespoke industry leading course.”

James Allen, Managing Director, Caring Homes’ sister company, Consensus – the provider of accommodation for individuals with learning disabilities, also comments: “Some individuals with a learning disability have additional risk of developing dementia. The application of such a pioneering course to some of the services within Consensus is giving our colleagues an invaluable insight into how to provide more effective and person centered support for some of the individuals we support with dementia. This will increasingly become an issue as we know that people with a learning disability are living longer and as such rates of dementia in the people we support will increase.”

The Living in my World training course offers three levels of award: ‘My World’ (bronze), ‘Understanding my World (silver), and ‘Supporting my World’ (gold). The bronze has been developed for all Caring Homes’ colleagues in mind, whereas the silver is aimed at colleagues in a care role and the gold level is for nurses and senior care colleagues.

The courses include face-to-face training, self-learning activities, an assessed workbook, plus an e-learning knowledge test.

The awards will be announced at a gala ceremony on the 3 February 2016 at the ICC Birmingham.

The Caring Homes Group was established in 1994 by registered nurse Helena Jeffery and her son Paul. Since then the company has grown to become one of the most highly respected independent care and support providers in the UK.
