Presently, over 90% of our staff have had special training in dementia. At any given time over 95% will be in a continuing training program on dementia related topics. Fairhaven Lodge has its own training room within the premises where training for other care homes also takes place. Fairhaven Lodge exceeds the NVQ requirements set by the Care Quality Commission as well as the staff to resident ratio.
Staff are trained to deal with the Challenging behaviors which so often accompany Dementia. They are trained in de-escalation techniques as well as all mandatory courses.
