Massage for Dementia Training Course

How creative, interactive and educational!”

AWARD for Excellence in Practice ~ Innovation

The compere for the evening was Janey Lee Grace who introduced the award, "This lady has developed a course for massaging people who have dementia, managing & understanding the special needs of this special group and empowering therapists to work knowledgeably, sensitively and safely. With dementia diagnosis on the increase, this innovative course has been developed, some would say, just in time."
