Motivation & Co. Training
We believe it is our 18 years experience and our on-going research, working with various client groups, tailoring our sessions to meet our client's needs that thirsts our knowledge to keep on providing our excellent service.
Our own Motivational Therapists that deliver the Motivation & Co. Classes everyday have on-going training focusing on techniques & developments in dementia care, cognitive therapy and the Motivation & Co. Stimulation techniques. It was with this in mind that we developed a package where everybody could benefit from our experience and expertise.
Activity Training Day Workshops
In 2010 we worked really hard with OCN developing new packages and becoming a registered training centre so we can now offer our knowledge and spread the word of ‘motivation’ to others working in the same field. We believe we are all working to achieve the same goals within our sector, to provide our clients with the best cognitive, stimulation and motivation as possible.
The launch of our Pilot ‘Activity training day workshops’ proved really successful and created a real buzz of enthusiasm which was then taken back to the workplace and put to good use. The feedback from these sessions has shown us a great need for more of our Activities training sessions and ideas within the homes.

Our training days have included our Activity Training workshops for the activity organisers and managing staff in our care homes providing basic Dementia training and the opportunity to meet and share ideas with other activity co-ordinators within the industry.Contact
Testimonials from our training days
Stephen Moss- Barchester (Attended the York training day)
"Hi Stephen here, big thank you for the information spread sheets and I would like to say how impressed I was with your staff with regards to the presentation workshop. I have been on many courses over the last 12 years including The Alzheimer’s Society Yesterday Today & Tomorrow over 10 years ago and although the workshop covered some of what I have done before, it was an excellent refresher course and it included new ideas with regards to activities and enhancing our residents daily living experience.Once again, thank you!"
