What to expect

Training for care homes

Our speech and language therapists provide a specialised training service for care homes. This service provides training for care home staff on aspects of speech, language, communication and or eating and drinking.

What type of training does speech and language therapy provide for care homes?

Our speech and language therapists will provide training on any aspect of speech, language and communication and / eating and drinking. Our training packages will vary depending on the specific needs and requirements of the care home. Training within care homes will usually focus on:

  • Training regarding mealtime safety, when assisting with eating and drinking.
  • Education and awareness on eating and drinking and the signs of aspiration.
  • Education and awareness on communication.
  • Effectively communicating with clients.
  • Education on communication difficulties and specific conditions e.g. Dementia and Aphasia.
  • Our training packages provide education for care staff on speech, language, communication and / eating and drinking. We will also provide skills on how best to support effective communication within the care home environment.

    We can increase the knowledge and understanding of care home staff in order to create a more effective communication environment and a safer eating and drinking environment.

    What will training involve for my care home?

    Our speech and language therapists will provide flexible training packages to meet the specific needs and requirements of the care home. The location, content and length of time of each training package will vary depending on the needs and requirements of the care home.

    Our speech and language therapists will deliver practical and interactive training and will provide care home staff with the skills and knowledge needed to create a more effective care home environment. Through training, we aim to give both the care home staff and their clients the best possible outcome regarding communication, eating and drinking.
