NAPA appreciates the challenge that the care sector faces of providing meaningful activities to the ever increasing frail, dependant individual, one who may also be living with dementia. Also to provide an “outstanding” service is the aim of every care setting, not an easy task but with the right guidance, achievable.
With this in mind NAPA has developed a training day, specifically aimed at the activity coordinator, care staff, and management staff. The morning session (9.30am – 12.30pm) will concentrate on adapting activities for different abilities and the afternoon session (1.00-4pm) will explore best practice around CQC quality ratings and activity provision. Come for one or both sessions the choice is yours! We only have 30 places at each session, so get your applications in quickly to avoid disappointment.
The cost per session will be £30 per person (NAPA members rate) or £100 per person (Non members rate).
