Team members are continuously trained and coached. As well as to thematic refresher courses, much care is given to training on the job where team members are encouraged to grow continuously and to learn from each other.
Each year students from different trainings courses are offered the possibility of coming on a placement. They are enabled to gain experience in working with people suffering from dementia in the context of a small-scale project based on the principle of normalization. We pay attention to offer each student optimal training opportunities. Considering the small-scale nature of the project the number of placements in Huis Perrekes are limited.
Huis Perrekes is frequently asked to present papers on conferences/seminars and educational visits are requested regularly by several groups (training courses, staff of hospices, policy makers,…).
