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.

The Dementia Training Company – helping hands across the sea
In November 2018 The Dementia Training Company will be travelling to Bermuda to share knowledge, experiences and ideas to help those affected by dementia in Bermuda to live well.
This will be the Dementia Training Company’s fourth visit to Bermuda at the request of the charity ‘Action on Alzheimer’s and Dementia’ (AAD) which was established by Elizabeth Stewart. Elizabeth recognised the dire need for help and resources for those living with dementia after her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease at age 67 and died 11 years later. Elizabeth founded AAD as a registered charity in 2012. Her hope for the organisation is not only to provide valuable information, resources and advocacy, but also to motivate and inspire the community to improve the lives of people living with dementia in Bermuda. Elizabeth is a Portsmouth University graduate so working alongside Sarah and Tim brings a very local feel to an international experience.
Sarah and Tim will be delivering a variety of events during their visit; workshops, seminars, visits to care establishments, meetings with GP’s, family carers of those with dementia and the Minster of Health for Bermuda.
Sarah says: “It is an absolute privilege to be invited to support AAD and the people of Bermuda. So much has happened around the world to improve our understanding and awareness of dementia in recent years. The opportunity to share ideas and experiences from the very best dementia care we see in the UK will, hopefully inspire those who are working so hard to improve the lives of people with dementia in Bermuda. It will be wonderful to celebrate the amazing things that AAD has achieved to support those affected by dementia on the Island.”
Tim says: “Living and working on the Isle of Wight has given me a better understanding of the unique challenges of living with dementia on one our sister Islands. Its such an amazing opportunity to return to Bermuda to continue supporting the work that Elizabeth has been doing. How fabulous to travel from one Island to another Island and to take with us and share information on the best British Dementia Care practices.
