East Hill Team Members Successfully Complete Supporting My World

East Hill House Care Home in Liss are proud to announce and congratulate two of their team in completing their Bronze, Silver and Gold levels of their My World Specialist Dementia training. Both Charlene (well-being/activities co-ordinator) and Pauline (member of activities team) only started at East Hill House in January 2018 – so they have completed the full course in just 11 months – which is fantastic!

Each level forms part of the City & Guilds My World Programme and they are all accredited and recognised within the dementia care industry. The training covers a range of areas within dementia which can support residents, families and friends in understanding the world that their loved ones are now living in.

All three levels relate to the care team member getting to know their residents, as well as seeing and feeling the frustrations they are having within the dementia world. From here they can understand and look to plan meaningful activities for each resident to give them a daily sense of purpose and confidence. Once this is completed they can progress to the gold sessions to learn and understand how much they need to support their residents whilst still respecting their independence, assess pain and comprehend the later stages of dementia.

An outstanding achievement by them both and Charlene said…

“Since starting at East Hill House we have both been given so many opportunities to develop our skills, and also learn some new ones, Sam the Home Manager has always supported and encouraged us to grow our skills to support our residents to a high level the same with all the team at East Hill House.”

East Hill House provides residential and dementia care for up to 32 elderly people and were awarded ‘Best Dementia Care Home of the Year’ at the prestigious National Dementia Care Awards in 2017.
