These workshops are specifically aimed at carers/families of people who are living with dementia. They are also proving hugely beneficial to members of the community too; who are eager to learn more about living and working with people affected by this most debilitating disease. Too often elderly living with Alzheimer’s or one of the other forms of dementia are moved into care homes earlier than is necessary, simply because family carers feel unable to cope.
Details of our next workshop are detailed below:
When? Wednesday 10th February 2016
Where? Birley Fire Station, Moor Valley, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S20 5FA
Time? 1:00pm – 4:00pm
We held a workshop recently and the feedback was extremely positive. It certainly served to reinforce the need for them:-
"It feels like we have somewhere to go now" - Family carer for her husband.
"On a personal note and having been a carer for over 10 years I can completely relate to this comment and this shows that community training is a massive achievement. Often, that is all people need to some degree - others who relate and can share their difficulties" Lee Pearse - ARUK National Dementia Champion and was carer for his mother.
The workshop is divided into 3 days and is delivered as following:
Day 1 of the workshop covers a broad background into Alzheimer’s disease and other Dementias and is a fantastic opportunity for members of the community to come along and get a clearer insight into Dementia and what they can do to stop the signs of this disease.
Day 2 includes capturing life’s journey and techniques to handle challenging behaviours
And finally Day 3 involves a range of activities to encourage engagement and participation
Our workshops are completely free, places on the workshops are limited so we recommend that you either call on 0114 246 9666 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place.
