I required reminders and best practices for moving and handling people, especially for those with dementia. I do not feel this course or indeed the video was of any use to me and my role.

Linda kicked me out because she said I was cooking ,it’s weekend what else does she wants me to do ? Not doing anything for a training of 8hours ?after going out the week. At least I was listening which should be her major priority not picking on me .Response : Hi Tinuola. Many thanks for your feedback. I am sorry you didn’t enjoy the training. To maximise retention of learning and thereby the safety of your clients we have the same classroom etiquette as a physical classroom. Therefore we do require your full attention during training. If you have any further concerns please do chat to your branch manager. Very best wishes
This course is completed annually and never changes . Why it takes 3 hours i really don’t know . Fair enough if it was for beginners only but not for those of us who have been doing this kind of work for many years . I find it really boring ! Not one of the best courses to do .
I Felt that some of this did not apply as I wouldn't be talking Bp/pulse or respiration's at my place of work and the person I work with does not have any Dns input. Feel this was aimed more at the elderly care and for people working in a nursing or elderly peoples home rather than with a teenager like i do on nights.
