Danuta wins at the National Dementia Care Awards 2018!

BACP member and My Home Life facilitator Danuta Lipinska had cause for celebration after bespoke training she helped to develop was recognised at the National Dementia Care Awards 2018.

Danuta, who specialises in ageing and dementia care, won the Outstanding Dementia Care Innovation category for developing high-quality services for people living with dementia.

It was received for the dementia-friendly training for East of England Co-op Funeral Services that Danuta developed and co-facilitated with Sharon Harkin, dementia champion at the East of England Co-op.

The training is the first of its kind and unique to funeral services. It aims to provide better support for families during the arrangement and funeral itself.

Of the training, Danuta said: “It was a delight and an encouragement to see and hear large numbers of compassionate, enthusiastic, open-hearted and open-minded women and men who are passionate about their work”.

“With an impressive range of existing humanitarian and specific funeral skills, we had a very positive interaction and enthusiastic engagement.”

Finally, My Home Life would like to congratulate Danuta on her wonderful achievement! We’re so happy for you and we’re very proud to have you onboard.

My Home Life thanks BACP for sharing their blog with us.
