Elder/Senior Care Nurse Training
Practitioner Level 1- Training Thurs 8th November 2018 - Mayo
Price: €175.00

This one day education & training programme is for staff working in continuing/residential care & day care settings for older people. The programme is only available for staff who have already completed the ‘Activity Therapy Staff Training – Alzheimer’s/Dementia’ one day programme (Nursing & Midwifery Board of Ireland category 1 approved) and who have been using the activity therapy in residential care & day care settings with a demonstrable consistency (minimum 4 months).

The programme teaches nurses an advanced level of theory which is behind the basic practices introduced in the original course, giving the practitioners a greater understanding of the science behind the methodology. The course also measures the participant’s level of ability in implementing the practical elements of the activity therapy such as massage and correct use of oils and sprays. A theory test is also presented at the end of the programme. On successful completion of the programme nurses will be approved to facilitate workshops in any residential care & day care setting for older people and will automatically credit their place of work as an approved ImaginationGYM place of practice for the duration of the nurses involvement.

Registered nurses will receive 5 training credits (cpd) for attendance on the course
