Our Dementia Friendly Champions

Glen Caring’s new Dementia Friendly Champions

Glen Caring are very proud to announce our completion of the Dementia Friendly Communities Programme. The 10 staff who took part are now Dementia Friendly Champions and will train other staff in turn.

“The programme facilitates the creation of dementia-friendly communities across the UK,” says Glen Caring general manager Linda Beckett, who took part in it herself. “Everyone, from governments and health boards to the local corner shop and hairdresser, share part of the responsibility for ensuring that people with dementia feel understood, valued and able to contribute to their community.”

“Glen Caring decided to get involved in this programme as we recognise a strong need for care and support for those with dementia and their families, and whilst we have our general dementia training in theory, we wanted to delve more into the practicality of working with someone with dementia. We wanted to look at the person as an individual with dementia and explore how we can offer them the best possible care and so we felt the best way to do this was to upskill our staff. “

Linda felt the programme equipped her “much better as a manager when visiting families and clients with dementia. I have a much better understanding and knowledge of dementia now, which has given me a sense of value when meeting with someone with dementia. I feel more confident in that I can relate to their world.”

“Before this, I feel had the theory of how best to support someone with dementia, but now I can engage practically on the best approach to improving the lives of those with dementia and their families.”

Linda says this specialist programme will enable Glen Caring to make a positive difference to the lives of those suffering dementia and their families. Other members of the Glen Caring team who took part in the programme included the following experienced carers:

  • Catherine McCallion
  • Claudine McLaughlin
  • Mandy Nicholl
  • Debbie McNally
  • Deirdre Donnell
  • Sheree Campbell
  • Justin Tarr
  • Vanessa Buchannan
  • Louise O’ Kane

Some of our Dementia Champions have commented:

‘The programme has made me much more aware of how best to work with individuals with dementia and this is because I have a much better understanding of dementia. The programme has been extremely influential on my approach as a carer, and I feel I can make a difference to the life of someone with living with dementia from what I have learned.’

‘I have already implemented what I have learned from the programme in my daily role as a carer, I have a much better understanding of my clients with dementia and I feel I am also a much greater support now for their families. I have also continued to guide other carers on their approach to dementia clients which have been very positive.’

‘As a Dementia Friendly Champion I feel I have a greater insight into the full extent of dementia and I am confident that I can have a positive impact of someone with dementia. I was less aware before and had a more generalist approach to dementia rather than an in-depth individual approach. I am confident that this something I can advocate and influence across staff in Glen Caring.’

Having successfully completed the programme Glen Caring are pleased to announce these staff members are now Glen Caring Dementia Friendly Champions, says Linda Beckett. “Our Dementia Friendly Champions will train and mentor all Glen Caring staff on essential information about the personal impact of dementia and what they can do to have a positive influence on anyone affected by dementia.”

“We feel this additional knowledge and expertise offers a little extra to our packages, providing further comfort and confidence to individuals suffering dementia and their families.”
