Apex HSC attending “I Love My Healthcare Market”

On Thursday 14th February, Apex Health and Social Care will be attending the Stockport Council healthcare event “I Love My Healthcare Market” along with senior care staff and trustees from the organisation.

 

 

The event will provide staff, partners, care users and the families of carers with the chance to find out more about the choices they have over their own care and support.

As well as offering information to those within the care industry and persons who utilise care services, “I Love My Healthcare Market” will also give attendees the opportunity to provide feedback on gaps in the market and the services they use or work with.

We invite anybody interested in the healthcare industry to come down and visit our stand on the 14th February from 11am to 4pm at Stockport Town Hall, Edward Street, SK1 3XE.

Police trained in care homes to help understand neurological conditions

Police are being trained to better understand the effects of Alzheimer’s.

After coming under fire for stunning a man suffering from Alzheimer’s with a tazer on his farm earlier in the year, The UK Police Force are looking for ways to diversify training in order to help recruits understand neurological conditions better.

Sarah Moody, locality manager for the Alzheimer’s Society said at the time:

“People with dementia can sometimes exhibit extreme agitation which can be difficult to understand and cope with for those who encounter it.”

“This unfortunate incident illustrates a lack of understanding in society of dementia and the best way to support and help people who are affected by this devastating condition.

Thames Valley police have entered a pilot scheme that will see them taking training sessions at Bluebird Care Home in Milton Keynes to help build a better understanding of how to deal with people who suffer from neaurological conditions and mental health issues.

Martin Elliott, community manager for Thames Valley Police said:

“Dealing with people with dementia and other neurological conditions is specialised.”

“We invest a great deal of time within our training programmes attempting to give our officers awareness of many of these issues. I am grateful to PJ Care for their investment and time in assisting with the placement programme, which practically allows our new police officers to acquire skills in dealing with people with some of these difficulties.”

“This knowledge and experience can only be of benefit to these officers, the police service and the wider community of Milton Keynes.”

Working with clients and patients with neurological conditions like Alzheimer’s and Dementia can be challenging but is also incredibly rewarding too. Apex Health + Social Care have a number of positions available for experienced carers and mental health nurses. For more information on how to apply, please contact recruitment@apexhsc.co.uk
