Testimonials

Hi Judy, I have just spoke to the last of the attendee's and without fail everyone has stated how much they enjoyed the training and felt it invaluable, all discussing how current Dementia practice could be improved and have all recommended you as a facilitator so I've passed this through to David at our head office. Thank you so much for the day. Take care.
