About this Event

Our programme of FREE online Dementia Skills Sessions start with ‘Thinking Differently About Dementia’.

This session is for family and friends, and staff and volunteers, who support somebody living with dementia. You will connect with experienced dementia trainers and other dementia carers to learn more about dementia and receive practical guidance that will help you in your supportive role.

Our experienced trainers cover:

  • Understanding dementia and the common symptoms
  • How dementia affects the senses, communication and behaviour
  • The importance of continuing to ‘see’ the person (and not the condition)
  • Practical ways to connect with a person with dementia
  • Strategies to overcome communication barriers
  • Solutions for adapting the environment.
  • The benefits of connection with nature and the outdoors

This 2-hour session provides you with the foundational knowledge you need in understanding dementia, therefore it is essential to complete this session before booking into any of our other Dementia Skills Sessions.

Who Should Attend?

This is suitable for anyone who wants to improve their knowledge and understanding of dementia.

Please note that if you are a paid member of staff or a volunteer, there is a maximum limit of 2 individuals per project/organisation on each session.

If this session inspires you to take the next steps to upskill the staff and volunteers across your organisation or project, create more inclusive and accessible services or set up a nature-based programme for people living with dementia, we can provide you with tailored training and support for your staff and volunteers.

“This is something everyone living with a relative with dementia should attend”.

"It’s made me feel less alone and more optimistic on this journey"
