    POSITIVE DEMENTIA COURSE level2 and other courses

    I really enjoyed doing this course. I learnt so much. It was well set out, easy to follow, extremely interesting. The college are excellent and very helpful. At the moment I am undertaking a food hygiene and a moving and handling of clients. These two courses are also very enjoyable and I am learning alot, which is helping me to gain more confidence in my job that I enjoy so much as a Live in carer and domicillary carer.
