Marquis Court care home, owned by Four Seasons Health Care, will open its doors to medical students from Keele University in Stoke-on-Trent for eight weeks of training.

The programme is designed to give students valuable exposure to delivering excellent standards of Elderly Nursing Care and Dementia Care. The programme’s curriculum, written by Four Seasons Health care home manager Ann Curtis, a specialist in elderly care nursing, will be delivered as tutorials that cover current legislation and guidelines on safeguards for caring for the elderly as well as patients with dementia.

The training will be implemented by the home manager with recognised teaching qualifications and 30 years of experience in the NHS prior to working for Four Seasons Health Care. Ann Curtis, home manager at Marquis Court, commented on the programme:

“The training programme is the beginning of a great relationship between Marquis Court and Keele University, and demonstrates our continued effort to ensure high standards for the future of the health care sector. This is a wonderful opportunity to put Marquis Court firmly on the map in Staffordshire, and in time we hope to have nursing students from other local universities too.”
