Inspirational Activities for People with Dementia

 

A hands on experiential day exploring and sharing experiences, challenges and activity ideas mixed with just enough theory and assessment to back up your practice. This one-day training course is suitable for all support staff, family carers and care home teams working daily with people experiencing dementia.

 

Course Aim:

 

To promote the principles of best practice in activity work with older people, particularly those who have dementia.

 

Course Objectives:

  • To understand the principles of a good activity culture with people experiencing dementia living in care homes

  • To provide support and inspiration for trying out new ideas & activities to encourage communication & new ways of working

 

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the characteristics of a care home with a good activity culture

  • List of the physical, psychological, social and community benefits of activity to an individual

  • Explain the features of a good activity

  • Demonstrate how to grade activities to suit the capabilities of an individual experiencing dementia using the Pool Activity Level

  • Explain how to structuring two types of an activity group; Cognitive stimulation therapy and Validation social group

  • Share tools and ideas to get started and ‘spice -up’ your day

 

Training Style/Approach:

Workshops are skills-based rather than academic, making learning an easy and fun experience. We coach in ‘real-time,’ adapting to the participant's learning needs as they arise, this makes our training attractive and effective. We use a range of experiential methods which include, discussion, case studies, films, exercises and skills practice. 

 

Trainer: Julia Pitkin

Julia trained as an occupational therapist and has a post graduate Certificate in Dementia Studies. She is the UK’s first certified Validation Trainer in Dementia Care, completing her training in Pennsylvania, USA. Her decision to specialise in dementia care was influenced by her work as a quality care auditor for a private sector accreditation company and for the former National Care Standards Commission, where she identified training needs for staff caring for people living with dementia in care homes. Her specialist interest and passion is in person-centred listening and communication, having recently made a training film called ‘Conversations that Matter: breaking through dementia’.
