Introducing a new way to create culture change in dementia care

Listen to David and Helen introducing The Butterfly Community:

We believe that developing a new way for our community to learn together will lead us to the the next stage in creating the cultural change we want to see in dementia care.

That’s why, this October, we’re launching The Butterfly Community™ – an online membership group that will support care home owners and managers to do just that.

Sharing our learning

It will reflect what they have each learnt over twenty years – from David’s learning from developing Butterfly Homes, to Helen’s extensive knowledge in pioneering person-centred practices. We will be sharing insights with members each month through a live, interactive webinar with David, Helen or their colleagues from Dementia Care Matters and H S A around a specific theme.

Following this, members will be given the tools to self-assess where they are in relation to best practice in relation to the month’s theme, followed by weekly resources and access to a range of ways to develop their approach in a way that reflects their organisation’s specific needs.

Monthly themes will include topics such as:

• Culture change and person centred practices
• The importance of the environment
• Staff motivation
• Recruiting for values
• How our language shapes our work
• Conversation and communication
• Beyond life stories
• Leadership at every level
• A fresh approach to paperwork
• Relationships, risk and safeguarding

To showcase their commitment to ongoing learning and development, members will be given a digital badge that they can use on their website or marketing material.

A chance to connect

Plus, members will be invited to an annual event where they will have the chance to meet others, share ideas and hear the latest developments in dementia care.

Join The Butterfly Community today and discover a new way to learn, grow and connect, from wherever you are in the world.

Join us today with annual membership of The Butterfly Community for just £495.

This means that in a care home with 80 staff, it costs just 10p per week per member of staff to have access to weekly resources to create change together.
