Free* training for residential care/nursing homes in Norfolk & Waveney around ‘recognising signs of deterioration’.

A series of one-day workshops designed to guide staff on recognising early warning signs or notice changes, to enable you to act quickly, if people you care for become unwell. This training is being delivered in response to NHS Health Education England guidance encouraging care home staff to think ‘is my resident well?’
