November Events

November was a very busy month for conferences and events for LHP Skillnet.

Our team was at the Nursing Homes Ireland annual conference in Lyrath Estate, Co. Kilkenny on 10th of November. We were also present at the 2022 International Dementia Conference, hosted by Engaging Dementia, on 15th and 16th of November at Croke Park, Dublin. During this conference we presented our QQI Level 5 Certificate in Dementia Care programme to the delegates.
