"I am the Area Manager for several of the Registered Care Homes that Judy gave workshops to, in Caring for People with Dementia and Grief and Bereavement. I have received very positive feed back from the participants that the training was informative, interesting and relevant. Given the diversity of our employees and under equal opportunities, full consideration was given to those for whom English is not a first language. Handouts were prepared and distributed for staff to use as a point of reference at a later date.

Judy was responsive and empathetic when we needed immediate support for staff following the sudden demise of a service user and I would not hesitate to recommend her as a trainer."
