Staff from a Sheffield care home are celebrating after scooping awards in honour of their work promoting best practice in dementia care.

Team leaders Claire Stoney, Denise Litchfield and Kelly Reaney, from Prior Bank care home in Nether Edge, along with their catering business support manager Bev Coulton, have passed their advanced dementia training course.

Denise said: “I now have a better understanding of the different types of dementia, their symptoms and causes which has helped me boost the high standards of care at Prior Bank.”

Kelly added: “I know what I’ve learnt will enable me to help our residents with dementia live as independent and fulfilling lives as possible.”

As part of dementia awareness week next week, a programme of reminiscence activities has been organised at Prior Bank, with themes including hobbies, sports, shopping, childhood, work, toys and games.
