Our People and Training
Our people are chosen for their patience, compassion, caring nature as well as ability to respect a person’s individuality and dignity.
Our dedicated and experienced Dementia Care Facilitators
Our core leadership team are certified Dementia care professionals with qualifications from care organizations in Australia. We recognize that our people are our most valuable asset and we are committed to their on-going training and development.
As there is always so much to learn about Dementia care, new care approaches and strategies, our core team will work closely with Dementia organizations to incorporate new methods and learnings into Caring With You’s Dementia Enrichment Program, and ensure that our approach is implemented to our dedicated team of Dementia Care Facilitators and on-going support for family caregivers .
Walking in someone’s shoes
At Caring With You, we see our clients for whom they are – people with emotions, feelings, likes and dislikes. Each person is different. And therefore there’s no one way of providing help and support. Our team of Dementia Care Facilitators are trained so that they have an understanding of what it might be like to be a person with Dementia – the physical and mental challenges and the behavioral swings from not understanding the environment that they are in.
Our training literally puts our Dementia Care Facilitators into the shoes of the person living with Dementia. The training in empathy allows us to understand why a person with Alzheimer’s and Dementia acts in a certain way. If the person with Dementia truly believes, for example, that they had just spoken to their parents or that they have to wait for their children’ s school bus, our facilitators are trained to support them through conversations to bring them to the here and now.
