Exploring Dementia

Exploring Dementia

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

EVERYONE will interact with someone living with dementia. All of us will find ourselves in a role in life, through work or personally where we are interacting with people who are living with a dementia. Sometimes we can feel lost in knowing the best way to approach, or what to say. The reality of this is that people with dementia can often feel isolated and lonely. This course will give you all the tools you need to empathise with the many symptoms that people with dementia may experience and how that impacts communication and day to day living.

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

People tell us this course is a real eye opener and go away feeling much more confident and empathic and full of new ideas to try for positive and meaningful interaction.

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.
