“Hi, we are Orchard House! We place residents at the center of everything they do. “Care with Kindness” is the best way to describe Orchard House. The core objective is to give residents the opportunity to enjoy a positive quality life experience during their stay.

We recognise each resident’s individual values and beliefs to be of the utmost importance in planning and delivering Person Centered Care (PCC). PCC essentially recognises every individual resident as unique and it takes a holistic approach in meeting the residents’ health and social care needs incorporating Namaste, which is a programme based around the mind, body and soul.”

Why did you want to complete the Level 3 Award in Education and Training (AET) with The Training Initiative?

“From a personal point of view, doing the AET is something I have wanted to do for a while. I wanted to be a teacher originally but did not get a higher enough class of degree. After spending some time voluntary in a classroom a few years ago, I realized this was not the area I wanted to work in. I wanted to continue to work with adults in a care setting; I’m passionate about care, especially Dementia. I want to help those that need our care get the best care they can. Training our staff allows me to do this as I have 18 years of experience now and wanted to expand on this.”

What skills has the AET course provided you with?

“The AET with yourselves has given me the skills to write training programmes for our staff tailored to our working structures and our resident’s needs. It is good to have a trainer on hand for new starters, whether that is modified food, end of life care, catheter care or challenging behaviour etc. It makes our training person centred which then makes our care focus even more person centred and gives us opportunities to tailor our training to address issues or scenarios that we deal with on a daily basis.”


Would you recommend this training course to others?

“As usual, Rich helped me through the process of my AET. He is always helpful, encouraging and I always feel comfortable on his training courses. This was one of the reasons I choose to do the course with you, and I would recommend this training to anyone wishing to develop and begin a training role.”
