Training

Training, Implementation and Accreditation

Namaste Care can benefit people with advanced disease across a variety of care settings, including residential care and nursing homes, hospitals, hospices and at home. Namaste Care International offers bespoke training, delivered by professional, experienced trainers who have all leaned directly from Professor Joyce Simard, the creator of the programme. They will facilitate providers to embed Namaste Care into the culture of their service, whether small or large.

As part of our commitment to a high-quality standard of delivery in Namaste Care, our training is accredited at three levels: Gold, Silver and Bronze.
