    We aim to support staff with their understanding and knowledge of dementia and how it affects individuals and others. We plan to implement this from the new staff starting, by including this in their induction training and training sessions for the more established staff as an induction/ refresher.

    Staff will also receive any updates and refresher training in their 1:1 supervises and any Team meetings to ensure that best practice is achieved across the service.
