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 Dementia 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.

Dementia in the News

Alzheimer's Society request help identifying key issues for a dementia-specific report on rights for the UN

One of Alzheimer’s Society’s main priorities with the new strategy, ‘A New Deal on Dementia 2017-2022’, is to develop a rights-based approach for our work. A central part of this work is to highlight the rights that people with dementia have under the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

The Convention came into force in 2006. It has 33 main articles which explain the rights of persons with disabilities. 173 of 198 UN Member States have agreed to the Convention. There is an overall Committee which monitors the implementation of disability rights in the states that have agreed to the Convention. The Committee is made up of 18 independent experts. State parties must submit a report to the Committee every four years. The Committee examines each report and makes general recommendations to the state parties.

People with dementia are protected by the Convention but we know their rights are not always being met.

The UK Government is currently being investigated by the Committee. We would like to submit a ‘shadow’ report to the Committee conducting the investigation which would focus specifically on dementia. The report would highlight the key issues people with dementia face in realising their rights under the Convention. We have just found out that it will need to be sent to the Committee by 31 July 2017.
