Graduates from Northern Ireland’s third cohort of Dementia Champions were recently honoured at a graduation ceremony held in Antrim. The graduates, health and social care staff from across NI who work in Health and Social Care Trusts and in the independent care sector, were successful in completing the Dementia Champions Programme in professional dementia care.

Douglas Adams, CEO, Connected Health commented “This course was a great success because the people involved believed that it was the right thing to do and to do well. The content, roll out and dedication of the course tutors, managers, organisers and funders  were what made it a success. The students played such an amazing part in the learning I have no doubt People with Dementia and their families will benefit greatly from the knowledge and expertise developed from this course. 

Connected Health are proud to have been involved with such a dynamic and dedicated bunch of people.”
