Engaging Care Home Residents with Dementia in Gardening Activities - Bristo...
Mon 20 March 2017, 12:30 – 16:30 GMT
A best practice sharing event for care home staff and family members of care home residents with dementia in Bristol interested in engaging residents in gardening activities. Places at this event are subsidised by the Dementia Wellbeing Service for Bristol based care staff or families of people with dementia in Bristol.
There is a body of evidence to show that gardening activities and spending time outdoors in nature is good for our health and wellbeing. Providing a programme of regular gardening activities helps meet regulatory requirements and essential care standards and demonstrates to families that your care home is a great place to live. However it can be challenging to know what to do with residents in the garden, or how to engage them in accessible outdoor activities safely.
This training will give you the knowledge, skills and confidence that you need to effectively engage residents in gardening activities. Places on the training are subsidized by funding from the Dementia Wellbeing Service.
- Better understanding of the health and wellbeing benefits for residents of engaging in gardening activities and spending time outside.
- Improved understanding of how to effectively manage risk for residents in the garden.
- Improved knowledge, skills and confidence in adapting gardening activities to enable residents to take part.
If you have any queries about the training please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you there!
