"As part of The Regard Partnership's drive for up to date and current training we have recently employed the services of Judy Carole from ELManagement. She has provided us with Training in Dementia Care and End of Life Care.

The training was professional and was easy to follow with staff learning from both of these sessions to carry out the highest standard of care. The sessions have been followed with regular support from Judy whenever this has been requested.

Both myself and my staff have made great use of the information that Judy gave us to care for people with dementia. We all feel that the sessions were valuable in enabling staff to cope with the steep learning curve involved. The End of Life Training was also excellent; the carers refer to it all the time.

I would highly recommend ELManagement for training sessions."
