Meeting the needs of people with dementia is topical in health and social care. However, the care of older people, including those with dementia, has received much negative media coverage over the past few years. Colten Care, a care home group in the south of England, asked staff from the School of Health and Social Care at Bournemouth University to develop and deliver an educational programme to 20 staff working at three of the group's care homes. The programme adopted a person-centred approach to residents and staff and focused on empowering staff to influence practice in the homes where they worked. This article explores the content of the programme and how aspects of it were incorporated in participants' care homes. The programme was positively evaluated and formed the basis for the development of Colten Care's inhouse two-and-a-half day education programme.
