Skills for Care Dementia Workshop

Trudi and Annette recently attended an advanced stages of dementia workshop for leaders and managers facilitated by Skills for Care.

The workshop was sponsored by the Department of Health and looked at good practice case studies to show how the adult social care workforce can best support people who have dementia and are in the advanced stages of the condition.

We were able to consider how reminiscence can be used by the workforce to support people with dementia and how meaningful activity could be used to engage with people who have dementia.

We also discussed promoting dignity in the advanced stages of dementia and end of life care for people with advanced dementia and shared good practice with other delegates.

Home Instead Senior Care Durham specialises in at-home care for older people and many of our clients are diagnosed with, or have symptoms of, Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. The work we do with these clients is about improving their quality of life and to allow our clients living with dementia to remain in their own homes, with support, for longer than would otherwise be possible.

If you would like more information about how we could help you or a loved one, call the office on 0191 374 4041
