About our training

Training to transform care 

Alive training enables staff to enrich the lives of older people - putting wellbeing at the heart of care through activities that foster closer relationships and happy environments.

Increasing the amount of social interaction for people with dementia living in care homes to just one hour a week improves quality of life when combined with personalised care.  Dr Doug Brown, Director of Research at the Alzheimer's Society, said: "This study shows that training to provide this type of individualised care, activities and social interactions can have a significant impact on the wellbeing of people living with dementia in care homes". Read the research.
