Training 2 CARE’s Managing Director, Glenn Knight comments “The VDT is the only method of helping staff and families to really understand the changes that we need to make to become a dementia interpreter. By understanding the issues faced by a person with dementia, we can unlock new ways to communicate, understand their behaviours, reduce frustration, anxiety and really improve their lives.
