Event description

Description

Comhaltas in Partnership with Irish in Britain is providing training for members in understanding Dementia and how music and song can help those in our community live better with dementia.

Many of our members and branches have had first-hand experience with those living with dementia. It is a significant issue for not only for the Irish community but also directly for our members and supporters so as an organisation we are trying to understand how we can help and support through music and traditional arts.

The training is being delivered by Irish in Britain through their Cuimhne program. Irish in Britain is a national leader in culturally specific dementia work for the Irish community in Britain and their experienced trainers have already delivered training for many Irish community groups.

During the day members will get an understanding of dementia and why it is a particularly prominent issue for the Irish community here in Britain. Members will also learn the importance of music and song in helping those with memory loss and dementia and how through Comhaltas we can support and help our members.

This training is part of our Comhaltas in Britain program to make Comhaltas a more Dementia friendly organisation and is supported and funded by the Irish Government Department of Foreign Affairs, Emigrant Support Program.

The day will begin at 10:15 with coffee and registration. Light lunch provided

Training is free to Comhaltas members.

Open to Non Comhaltas members £15.00 (limited number)

Training will be delivered by Dr Mary Tilki
