Coaching and Consultancy

MindCare coaching and consultancy service helps put dementia skills and learning into practice in your organisation. It can be booked in conjunction with a dementia skills training package or separately to support individual case management.

Dementia coaching and consultancy can include:

  • in-house observation and feedback of work with people with dementia (one-to-one or team coaching for care staff)
  • individual client/case management support to help care staff understand what a person may be communicating through their language and distressed behaviour
  • supporting all staff to implement consistent approaches to a person’s care
  • creation of dementia friendly environments.

“I have already applied my training to my work practice to enable me to understand a difficult client that we have to work with. The impact is positive for both the client and myself.”
