TWO Runcorn care home workers, Simonsfield Care Home, have enhanced their end of life care skills and knowledge after passing a rigorous programme of training.
Carers Alexandra Groundwater and Alison Clifton, from Simonsfield Care Home, have completed the Six Steps to Success in End of Life Care programme.
Based on national frameworks, the programme was developed in the North West by the Cheshire and Merseyside Clinical Network and the Greater Manchester, Lancashire and South Cumbria Clinical Network.
The aim is to enhance end of life care provided by care homes through supporting staff to develop their roles.
Alexandra and Alison are now certified to train their colleagues in the Six Steps programme.
