A message from Jane Thackray
“I have been employed as the Head of HR & Training since January 2012. In that time I have seen how much Dementia Care has grown and developed. As a charity it is a very rewarding place to work, making a difference to the lives of people with dementia and seeing the impact our services can have.
From an employment perspective, there is absolute recognition that we could not achieve high standards and levels of care for those that we support were it not for our employees working directly with these people. We are always looking to encourage, train and develop people to be the best.
We recently achieved the Investors In People Bronze accreditation, a credit to everyone working at Dementia Care. Over the next few years we will be working to achieve the Investors in People Gold accreditation. We recognise that there is more we can do and working towards the Gold accreditation will help us achieve this.
People are at the heart of what we do and providing a workplace within which people feel valued, heard, understood and taken seriously is key”.
