2023 Professional Development Day
Welcome to the DCM Institute’s Professional Development Day. James takes the stage to tell a story and what you can expect from the DCM Institute over the next year.
We explore the identification of dementia signs, effective communication strategies, creating dementia-friendly environments, and collaboration with support networks.
Gain a comprehensive understanding of disputes and their causes, explore real-life examples, and learn the art of legislative compliance.
Delve into the world of dementia and learn about the challenges individuals and families face, discover valuable support resources and explore how to create a compassionate and informed community.
Explore the contemporary landscape of retirement living. Learn how retirees are redefining their golden years with dynamic living spaces, wellness programs and social connections.
Delve into the duty of care that village managers have towards residents with declining acuity, including signs of dementia. We will explore legal obligations, recognising and responding to symptoms, implementing effective management strategies, and adopting best practices. Practical examples and case studies will be shared to illustrate real-life scenarios.
VILLAGE SUMMIT 2022 brings together a master list of speakers from a range of fields – including legal experts, marketing professionals, and industry veterans – to provide a day packed with valuable learning opportunities and inspire delegates for personal and business growth in 2023.
Purpose is an organisation’s reason for existing beyond just the financial, and a Village Manager epitomises this every day.
With a clear purpose of your own, you’ll improve engagement with colleagues and residents, achieve business goals faster, and enjoy a sense of direction in what you are doing, and in your career.
