Exploring Dementia

Exploring Dementia

 

 This interactive training workshop uses creative and engaging techniques that will have you interested from the moment it begins!

"This course is fascinating, engaging and thought provoking and will help me no end in my conversations with people living with dementia and their families."

EVERYONE will interact with someone living with dementia. Sometimes we can feel lost in knowing the best way to approach, or what to say and the sad fact is that the outcome of this is that people shy away from saying anything at all or avoiding conversations incase they get it wrong.

People with dementia need human connection more than anything else and you can make an amazing difference in your community if you can do this confidently and with an understanding of some of the difficulties you can help with.

This workshop will give you an understanding of:

Common Symptoms and their impact on communication, perception and relationships and how your approach can make a difference.

 Useful communication techniques.

 Positive and enabling activities.

 How to support someone to live well with dementia.
