Home Instead isn’t just leading the way in training our CAREGivers, many of our 150 offices have also been supporting family members and the broader community by providing free family dementia workshops in their local area.
Home Instead has so far delivered over 500 free workshops and trained an incredible 10,000 people. The workshops have been extremely well received and have been attended by people from all walks of life, such as carers, NHS staff , firemen, policemen, ambulance services, MP’s, charities, voluntary care services and retailers. Many of us could be affected by dementia at some stage in our lives whether it is you, a loved one or someone you meet in your day to day life. Like everything in life, learning new skills to help both yourself and others is invaluable.
The content of the workshops have been developed directly from Home Instead’s unique City & Guilds Alzheimer’s CAREGiver training programme and includes sessions on the following:
• Understanding Alzheimer’s Disease and Other Dementias
• Capturing Life’s Journey
• Techniques To Manage Behaviours
• Activities To Encouraging Engagement
