Event description

Description

The Listening with Your Eyes workshops, run by Vamos Theatre, are open to members of the public and healthcare professionals. They are ideal for anyone who has a family member of friend who lives with dementia and who would like to improve the way they can communicate with that person, or for anyone working with people who have the condition.

The workshops consider the way we make connections with others, particularly in non-verbal ways, when spoken words may not make sense, and how this can help carers communicate with loved ones living with conditions like dementia. This may be through body language, mood, eye-contact, touch and gesture, and tone of voice. The workshops aim to improve people’s understanding of this and give them the tools to put it into practice in their day-to-day lives.

The workshops have been organised with NHS Aylesbury Vale and Chiltern Clinical Commissioning Groups and NHS England South.
