Congratulations Dementia Champions!

We now have another three CAREGivers who have completed their Dementia Training Course.

Congratulations to Eshan Azadbakht, Lucy Finnan and Noela Walters who attended a six week Dementia Training course ran by Care Coordinator- Misti Toms.

The Dementia Course saw Misti covering six modules which the CAREGivers attended and completed in their two hour weekly sessions.

The Dementia Training Covered:

· The History of Alzheimer’s and other Dementias
· Understanding Behavioural Expressions
· Unmet Needs
· Encouraging Client Engagement
· Nutrients
· Client Safety
· Supporting Clients and their Family’s
· Building Trust, take the Lead and Share your Heart.

The CAREGiver’s shared their experiences of looking after clients with Dementia. They also engaged with the roll play and discussions.

All three expressed to Misti (Care Coordinator) that they now have more of an understanding of the needs of their Clients, how to identify there unmet needs, and dealing with difficult situations.

Eshan, Lucy and Noela are now looking forward to putting their knowledge to the test.

Congratulations Dementia Champions!
