The Dementia Training Company
Tim Forester Morgan and Sarah Mould created the Dementia Training Company in 2011. With over forty years' experience of working in dementia between us, we believe that we have the knowledge and ability to make a positive difference to the lives of individuals with dementia, by raising awareness of their experiences and providing bespoke learning and development opportunities for those who support them.
We deliver learning and development activities in a warm, friendly yet professional manner which celebrates the individuality of the learners. By using a learner-centred approach we ensure that the diverse needs of every learner are met in order to reflect their individual experiences and areas of expertise.
We offer a wide range of courses designed to equip care staff of all levels and disciplines with the skills they need to enable individuals with dementia to live well. All our courses are mapped to the Skills for Care Qualifications and Credit Framework Dementia Pathway. We are able to offer Accredited QCF Dementia Pathway Awards and Certificates.
We also offer consultation services. For details please see our consultation page.

Finding a Good Care Home: A guide for you and your loved one
Finding a Care Home for someone that you love and who has dementia can be one of the most difficult things you will ever have to do.
Not everyone who lives with dementia will need to move into a Care Home. But for those who need the level of care, support and safety they provide; moving into a Care Home is a life changing experience for everyone involved.
This is why we have written this guide. As a group of professionals and family carers we have personal experience of caring for someone we love with dementia and finding a Care Home for them. Our experiences are all unique but we have one experience we share…none of us felt that we had the support, information and knowledge we needed to help us find a good Care Home at the time.
We have pooled our knowledge, thoughts and ‘benefit of hindsight’ to put this guide together and maybe fill in some of the gaps you need to help you find a good Care Home.
