Moving off Tasks (MOT) Training 



When a car is coming up for its MOT there is often anxiety whether the vehicle will be fit for purpose and sail through the MOT or end up with a list of car maintenance requirements.


Dementia Care Matters sees a similar analogy in the whole area of achieving culture change in care services where an old model needs upgrading.   Just as in successfully getting a car through its MOT the main fear is that the engine hasn’t caved in so the big challenge in care services in achieving renewal is whether a care service has managed to reduce task orientation – MOVING OFF TASKS.



Dementia Care Matters recognises that just as with a car the three key parts of gears, clutch and brakes are critical so equally the three areas within a care service of achieving person centred care within a group living setting whilst still achieving completion of daily tasks is a particular challenge.

Dementia Care Matters believes there are effective ways to ‘tinker’ with an old model just like a car mechanic which will hold on to the best of what is already working within a care service whilst adding in new parts.  MOVING OF TASKS (MOT) training provides some new parts and an MOT for a care service as below:
