Care Staff at Cornford House and Hazeldene House in Tunbridge Wells have recently completed their Dechoker Train The Trainer course ahead of deploying the life-saving devices on both sites.
Part of the Graham Care Group, both sites provide high quality affordable accommodation for people who need 24 hour nursing care, particularly those with dementia.
With a capacity of 75 residents in each of the houses and set across several floors, multiple devices have been cited at key locations ensuring access in an emergency situation.
Using their new skills and training manikin, all staff will be shortly be receiving their training. Dechoker usage has also be incorporated into their induction process ensuring that all new employees are already fully skilled from the outset.
Dechoker UK also supported the integration of the devices into their own policy and procedures. By providing a framework which links in with staff training it made the process a smooth and simple one to implement.
