These three-hour training seminars are designed for a range of organisations and individuals such as care home staff or family carers.
The training considers several key issues:
- What is dementia?
- What it means to the individual.
- How can people live well with dementia?
- How can dementia affect communication and interaction?
We explore three simple, effective, research based models of how to interact and communicate with people living with dementia.
We consider how dementia may affect the senses and perception, as well as reviewing some of the difficulties that may be experienced.
We also look at solutions to support and adapt the environment.
Additionally, we share how our Dementia Adventure activities and holidays have created opportunities for various physical and outdoor activity and how positive risk taking can benefit the individual.
We end with a question and answer session. We also look at what dementia support and activity services are available locally, together with resources for further learning and development.
