|Ann Uale - Kalandra graduate
"I love my work in a Dementia Care unit where every day and situation is different. My training at Kalandra means I understand Dementia and what my patients are experiencing so I know how to communicate and find out what they need, and how to help them feel calm and happy."
"The Certificate programme taught me better inter-personal skills, patient advocacy, teamwork, the importance of being transparent and passing on information, self-care and ways of reducing stress. I thought the online study was straightforward and simple to manage. The course was challenging and interesting and the staff explained what was needed when I was unsure."
Julie Watt - Kalandra Graduate
"The online study meant I could manage the course in my hours after work. I stuck to my goal, of doing it for an hour each night after work and when I could in the afternoons on the weekends. The tutors were so supportive, and always responded quickly on email with help to my questions." "I now feel I am a step up in my Health Sector career. The Level 4 certificate has added value to my qualifications and will make me more eligible for other roles. I have a lot more confidence in my skills and ability to cope when dealing with dementia client behaviour and know how to handle behaviours which can be challenging if you don’t understand what is happening. I recommend for others to do this."
