Disability Awareness & Mental Health Training in Kilkenny and Waterford

Bluebird Care’s recent Training workshops in Kilkenny and Waterford covering Disability Awarenss and Mental Health received excellent feedback from all Care Staff who attended. Brian Egan Managing Director said ‘we ran these training sessions last year and felt it made sense to run them again as part of our continuous training program. The training was done by Disability Consultancy Services and all the topics covered should hopefully be of benefit to the carers in their work’
Brian added ‘ we are now already planning our next training which will cover important areas such as Palliative Care, further training on Elder Abuse and an overview on record keeping and Documentation’
We are providing care for people of all ages and with a range of different needs throughout Carlow, Kilkenny and Waterford so having experienced and trained care staff is so important’.
