Alzheimer’s Society CEO visits Chamberlain Court Care Home to learn about their dementia care
CEO of Alzheimer’s Society Kate Lee visited our care home in Tunbridge Wells recently to learn about their dementia care provision.
Kate, who runs the UK’s largest voluntary provider of dementia support requested a visit to Chamberlain Court after watching the dementia team speak at Hallmark Care Homes virtual Care Home Open Week event last June.
During the visit, she was given a tour by our home’s newly promoted Dementia Care Manager, met the team and General Manager and was treated to lunch.
The visit also comes following Hallmark’s recent £1million investment into dementia training, research projects and dedicated roles.
This includes the appointment of 11 dementia managers, three regional Dementia Practitioners, an award-winning Head of Dementia Care and Wellbeing, a Wellbeing Manager and a Researcher in Residence, which is a first for the sector.
The evidence from the research projects conducted and overseen by Dr Isabelle Latham will be used to further continuous improvement in dementia care not just at Hallmark but throughout the industry.
Dementia Care Manager at Chamberlain Court Care Home, Natasha Perks said: “I feel extremely honoured to have met with Kate Lee, and it was a highlight of my career so far.
“We spent time showing Kate around Chamberlain Court sharing the wonderful work we are doing to improve the lives of residents living with dementia.
I shared with Kate, Hallmarks welcome home dementia strategy along with our senses detective’s framework. I explained to Kate about Chamberlain’s senses pledge explaining that we are committed to create a sense of belonging and achievement for people living with dementia.”
