Places are still available for ‘Getting Along – Time for a new approach to dementia care’ on Thursday 25th May 2017 at Twickenham Training Centre.
This one-day course will be of special interest to anybody from any sector working in or commissioning services for people with dementia and their carers in a community setting.
It aims to help participants:
- Address BOTH sides of the care-giving relationship,
- Adopt strategies to equip people with dementia and their families to live well and better with dementia,
- Influence the creation of a service wide relationship-centred approach.
For more information on Getting Along and on the work and impact to date, see my earlier blog which sets Getting Along in a policy context.
Within the current climate there is a real imperative to:
- revisit how we operate – by taking the lead from people with dementia and their supporters to avoid the many pitfalls and traps that dementa sets within close relationships.
- adopt a rights-based approach in levelling the playing field in terms of voice, choice, control and identity within relationships.
- Match the call for increased diagnosis rates with practical support in and around the time of diagnosis.
Getting Along does all these. Book early for your place. Details below
