2 Day Safety Intervention training at Maples Nursing Home, Bexley Heath.
Darren and John delivered the 2 day safety Intervention training to the staff from the Mayflower care Home and Maples Nursing Home on 5th and 6th July 2013.
The course is aimed to aid staff that work with residents suffering from dementia. It is there to prevent staff from the possibility of being injured at work.
We discuss methods of communication and how to interpret the behaviour of a resident suffering from dementia. The causes of anger, how to recognise it and how to deal with it.
We also show some low level self defence techniques. The staff have to be very careful when dealing with their residents due to their age, but on the other hand the staff have to be able to defend themselves. these techniques have been devised to cause the minimum amount of injuries as practically possible.
The training took place at the Maples Nursing home in Bexley Heath. A brand new home set up by Churchgate healthcare Care Homes. Staff from mayflower Care home also attended the course.
The staff from both homes were fantastic over the 2 days. All participated fully. Even though the heating was on, on a glorious sunny day.
Many thanks to all the staff that attended.
