Meaningful Activity And Being Busy – Dementia Course
Do you struggle to fit everything you need to do into each day? Most of us complain about how busy we are, with little time for ourselves. We dream of taking a holiday so that we can shut down and “unplug” from everyday life.
Imagine your “unplug” was permanent. How quickly would you become bored? Do you think that you begin to feel depressed? How not being of use to others damage your self-esteem?
This course explores the psychological effects of engagement and activity on self-esteem. We will challenge the common view that engagement is just the work of an Activity Co-ordinator. It is a part of every interaction we have with a person with dementia.
Attendees will learn how to facilitate genuine engagement with a person with dementia. Next you will learn how to encourage involvement in daily activities. Finally you will find ways to create opportunities for meaningful activity and engagement for people in all stages of dementia.
Learners will receive a workbook and wide range of activity suggestions for different stages of dementia.
Dementia Training Course
When it comes to dementia training courses, Coleman Training are the experts. We developed and delivered the dementia awareness course for Care Quality Commission inspectors, we are a Skills for Care Centre of Excellence, TQUK approved centre, Highfield approved centre, Member of the Care Learning Coalition, Member of the ILM and we are signed up to the Good Business Charter.
We model a person-centred approach by putting learners’ needs at the centre of all that we do. When learners acquire knowledge and skills in an environment that is respectful, supportive and inspiring, they are empowered to support others. Developing empathy and seeing “the whole person” are core values that run through every course we deliver.
All of our expert dementia trainers previously worked with the Alzheimer’s Society – three of whom were Lead Trainers with the Society. Each has at least 20 years of experience in dementia care training and all trainers have direct experience of supporting a person living with dementia. This means that while the training that we deliver is evidence based, reflecting current best practice, it is also underpinned by a wealth of practical experience, which is available to support learners.
