Today Milestones Trust today celebrated 100 years of Learning Disability Nursing with a celebratory lunch of nurses past, present and future! Learning Disability nursing has always had significance before and during the 33 year history of Milestones Trust.
Since the closure of long stay hospitals, learning disability nurses have had various roles working with the people we support including leadership and management of residential and nursing homes and specialist roles such as Positive Behavioural Support management. The skills of our nurses ensure we provide person centred care, advocating and improving the lives of the people we support.
We are proud to support the University of West of England to provide placements for student learning disability nurses throughout their training within our specialist nursing and residential homes.
Reuben Collings, Clinical Nurse Advisor says “I’m extremely proud of the contributions of our Registered Learning Disability Nurses within Milestones Trust. Our nurses really make a difference to enriching and changing the lives of the people we support.”
