Autumn course - 4 April 2024 & 25 April 2024

Cost: £170 per person or £290 for two people

This course is restricted to 24 people.

Namaste CareTM training teaches staff techniques to maximise comfort and connection through the senses, intentional presence, enhancing the physical environment and thinking and planning ahead. This is vitally important, particularly during the ongoing pandemic when restrictions have continued to negatively impact residents, families, and staff.

All previous participants from this innovating and exciting course agreed that Namaste CareTM would benefit residents in their care homes. And, all participants would recommend this online training to a colleague, as it gave them practical ways of reaching residents they had previously struggled to comfort or connect with.
